The gold standard: What's new in women & money this week (Feb 17th)

February 17th, 2017 by

Awesome reads from around the web for the week of February 17th, 2017


Between planning for retirement and planning a better future for all, this week's stories reminded us: women have their work cut out for them. 

So maybe retirement can wait (for now). 

Here are this week’s top reads for women and money from around the web.

Editor's picks of the week

  1. The latest retirement survey from Royal Bank shows that pre-retirees worry about spending too much time with their spouses…and then there’s also the money thing.

  2. Government programs affect people in different ways—gender is one mediating factor.

  3. Who run the world? Some of Canada’s leading female entrepreneurs are helping Trudeau deal with Trump.

  4. Surprise! If you’re expecting to receive your partner’s CPP benefits upon their passing, think again.

  5. Favourable tax rates on capital gains may be up for grabs in upcoming budgets.

  6. Women in film. Big players like Nicole Kidman are not waiting for the phone to ring.

  7. Retirement? What’s that? More women are choosing to work past retirement age—and not just for the money. (Golfing with hubby will have to wait.)

  8. More padding please. Single female boomers need to save more for retirement. (Sorry.)

  9. This snapshot of the Canadian work force may make you rethink your exit strategy ahead of retirement.
