The North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA) has launched an investor education program called "Women in Transition," which features resources to help women invest with confidence at every stage of their financial lives, the organization announced Tuesday.
NASAA's announcement of the new program came on the same day the National Council for Research on Women issued its report "New Evidence in Gender Pay Gap for Women in Management" during hearings on Capitol Hill.
"Women in Transition"focuses on the money challenges women can face during periods of financial transition, such as marriage, divorce, job loss or retirement. According to the statement, the program aims to bolster women's confidence in their investment decisions and to avoid investment fraud through customized investor education resources, on-site presentations to women's groups and a public awareness campaign.
