One in five women believe investing is for men, research reveals

One in five women believe investing is only for men, research has revealed. A poll, of 2,000 adults, found 74 per cent of females are more inclined to save their money, than attempt an investment (12 per cent). Whereas only 63 per cent of men would put spare money into a savings account - with 21 per cent putting it in the stock market instead. The gender pay gap (27 per cent) and access to financial education (15 per cent) were among reasons it's seen as a preserve for men. However, 77 per cent of women would be interested in learning more about how to get started in investing.
