Empowering Women to Take Control of Their Financial Future

At Savant, we have a diverse team who are committed to empowering women. We recognize that while the basics of money management have nothing to do with gender, women often have different financial challenges and unique financial planning needs. They tend to live longer, save less, invest more conservatively, and take breaks from the workplace to care for others.

Although more women manage their household’s finances in addition to serving as influential leaders in business and the community, we still see the detrimental effects of financial illiteracy on women in the world every day.

Cents of Self is a vibrant and supportive community of women who support each other as they walk further along the path to financial literacy.
