The purchasing power of women has been rising for decades and all signs say it will continue. The amount of assets controlled by women in the U.S. is expected to climb from $10 trillion (about 33%) to $30 trillion by 2029. According to Morgan Stanley, women control 83% of all consumer purchases in the U.S., ranging from cars to health care to electronics. In 2020, women were the primary income earner in 41.2% of households with children. And because women are statistically more likely to outlive their male spouses, the money they earn will have to last them longer.
With that in mind, many financial experts are recommending to women that as their economic power grows, they take a lead role in managing their family’s finances.
