Shweta Lawande, a certified financial planner and analyst at Francis Financial has recently been quoted by CNBC on how women can take charge of their finances and prepare for retirement.
After the pandemic, building back up retirement savings can be challenging. “Women should also focus on spending and living within their means,” said Shweta Lawande.
“What we’re trying to share with our clients in this time is to focus on what they can control,” Lawande said. “While they can’t control lockdowns or the job market, they can make sure their budgets are airtight,” she added.
“And, those with an existing portfolio can take some time to check their asset allocations to ensure they’re invested in a diverse group of stocks, bonds, real estate, cash and more, said Lawande, adding that it reduces risk,” she continues.
“Even in a year like 2020, we saw the benefits of our clients who have stayed invested in the market and diversified,” Lawande concludes.
