Posted On: Sunday, September 1, 2019

This week's best articles, alongside short snippets of miscellaneous interestingness that you won't want to miss out on.


Don't leave it to your man

It should come as no surprise that women have different financial needs and therefore different financial planning needs to men. Although the world of work has seen dranatic changes in the last half century, women are still paid less than men, and are less promoted to management positions in many industries.
