Financial services companies should do more to get women to prepare for the future.
Speakers delivered that message here earlier this week at a seminar organized by Prudential Financial Inc., Newark, N.J.
Prudential also unveiled the results of a recent survey of 1,007 U.S. women that focused on their financial knowledge, financial behaviors and confidence in attaining their financial goals.
Prudential has been conducting the survey every other year.
Although 53% of the women surveyed in 2004 said they intended to save and invest more money over the next 23 months, only 11% actually did so this year, Prudential executives said.
