A new report from Financial Finesse has found that women are having a much tougher time navigating the financial crisis than men.
From January 1 through April 30, Financial Finesse’s Financial Helpline Services–which is staffed by salaried CFPs–received more than twice as many calls from women (68%) than from men (32%). The study tracking calls to the Helpline found that women were more “reactive than proactive about their finances than men,” the study states.
Financial Finesse found that:
? 43% of calls from women were regarding debt, with half of those relating to strategies to reduce debt, while 36% of calls from men were regarding debt.
