Learn-To-Trade.com Inc. Weighs in on Study Showing Women Taking Lead with Personal Finance

Learn-To-Trade.com Inc. (www.Learn-To-Trade.com), Toronto’s leading provider of professional stock market trading courses designed to create successful traders in the financial markets, is weighing in on two recent studies showing women are becoming more confident and taking the lead in decisions related to personal finance and stock market investing.

According to a recent report, roughly 60% of Canadians believe that men are more involved in the decision process when it comes to stock market investing than women. At the same time, Canadian women have a longer life expectancy (83 years of age) than men (79 years). At some point in their life, most women will be entirely responsible for making all the financial decisions. (Source: BMO Financial Group press release, “BMO InvestorLine Study Reveals Men Are More Confident Investors than Women,” September 16, 2014; https://newsroom.bmo.com/press-releases/bmo-investorline-study-reveals-men-are-more-confid-tsx-bmo-201409160968093001.)

“Today, women control roughly one-third of all North American wealth. And that number is growing eight percent annually,” says George Karpouzis, Co-founder and Director of Education at Learn-To-Trade.com Inc. “Specifically in Canada, more than 75% of women in couple families say they are either solely responsible for managing household income and investment decisions or they share these responsibilities with their partner.” (Source: Williams, C., “Economic Well-being,” December 16, 2010; https://www.statcan.gc.ca/pub/89-503-x/2010001/article/11388-eng.htm.)

Karpouzis explains that there is a marked difference in confidence levels and investing styles between women and men. The study found that 68% of women are confident about their ability to make wise investing decisions, compared to 83% of men. When asked why women might lack confidence when investing, half (48%) of respondents said women are intimidated by stock market investing.

Despite the discrepancy, women are more likely to seek out stock market education and guidance before committing to an investment decision. In general, female investors tend to be more conservative and more focused when it comes to investing and planning for the future.

“Women are taking a bigger role in managing their own finances and decisions about investing in the stock market. While the investing confidence level between women and men is still large, the gap is shrinking,” Karpouzis adds. “Plus, it’s important to remember that there is a big difference between being risk-averse and risk-aware.”

“Learn-To-Trade.com believes it’s important for both women and men to have a comprehensive understanding of the stock market and broader trading strategies. Taking stock trading courses from Learn-To-Trade.com provides investors with the knowledge, tools, and confidence to make successful, independent investment decisions,” Karpouzis concludes.

I wanted to let you know that I had taken your course in the fall of 2013. I took your advice and used demo accounts for the last quarter of 2013. I switched to real money trading account in the Near Year, when I finally felt comfortable. Following the lessons taught to me by you (don’t jump on a moving train, peaks and valleys, EMA..etc), I wanted to let you know that I have been successful beyond my own expectations. Thank you very much – taking the Learn-to-Trade course was, by far, the best decision I made in my business career.

I took your course in 2008 and loved it. Since then I have been using what I learned at Learn-to-Trade to nicely supplement my pension income. Wanting a carefree type of trading, I have for the most part just sold options and made a monthly income which is a nice addition to my pension. I know I never would have made this kind of trading income without Learn-to-Trade. Thank you!

Hi George,

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work on the tutorials especially Options trading.   Prior to joining, I had underestimated the quality of the trainings but they certainly far exceeded my expectations. Only I wish I’d found you 5-10 years ago!
