The pandemic and work from home environment has opened up time for many of us to reflect on our goals and values. High on everyone’s list this past year has been financial planning and investing. The lockdown period has forced us to reduce spending and increase savings as uncertainty loomed and as the market's volatile swings detracted some, others decided now was a perfect opportunity to take a step into the investing world. As the ease of access to open accounts and the plethora of options has exploded over the past few years, opening a new account has never been easier. Women outpaced men in 2020 at a 3:2 ratio in new accounts opened. This is welcoming news to Aspen Women’s Wealth as we encourage everyone to have the education and confidence to participate in the markets.
