  • When it comes to family finances, women are more likely to handle the day-to-day expenses while men are more likely to invest for the future, the 12th annual TD Women Investor Poll has found. For example, only 32% of women in a couple responsible for managing investments compared to 49% of men. Similar imbalances are seen for dealing with financial professionals and planning for retirement.

  1. Women are generally more worried about debt then men.


  2. Yes woman may tend to be more worried about debt , but in long run what is better being debt free or carrying loads of debt around with you and worrying yourself to the grave?


  3. It's imperative that both spouces understand all money topics including debt, budgeting, investing, etc and be involved in all big decisions. One can be better than the other at recording expenses or researching investment products, but both need to know all the basics. This way you both will understand what it will take to build weath and prosper.


  4. Welland is the 3rd cheapest place to buy a house! Guess thats why I grew up there! And why I plan to buy there, and not my current city of Toronto!
