Women have a money problem. They earn less than men and invest less, as well.
The gender investment gap can be chalked up, in part, to insecurity, experts say.
The numbers tell the tale. Only 26% of American women invest in the stock market, a 2018 report from S&P Global found, and they invest less aggressively than men. Yet a 2017 Fidelity study found that women who did invest outperformed men by 40 basis points.
