Wells Fargo

To kick off National Financial Wellness Month, Wells Fargo published a new report with research done in tandem with the Female Quotient, exploring topics around financial literacy, the gender/generation divide in relation to money, and recommendations to help consumers bridge that gap.

  • The survey findings showed that women felt significantly more uncomfortable when discussing wealth and finances, when compared to men with over 40 percent stating that they have a stressful relationship with money.
  • Wells Fargo and the Female Quotient provide recommendations for women who want to be empowered to take control of their finances. This includes leaning on experts, feeling more comfortable talking about finance by shifting the conversation about how each gender should handle money, understanding financial trauma, and more.
