Do Women Invest Differently?
On the five-year anniversary of Calvert Foundation’s Women Investing in Women Initiative (WIN-WIN), Najada Kumbuli, Senior Investments Officer, discusses whether or not gender impacts investing behavior. Calvert surveyed current and past investors to test some hypotheses. Women reported slightly more impact investing activity than men and 76% of women reported that women empowerment was an important issue (vs. 49% of men). They also learned women are more likely than to consult family members when making investment decisions.
