RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today launched its new video interview series focused on women and personal finance. The first installment features three financial planning tips for women from award-winning financial planner, Elizabeth Liechty, who is senior partner and founder of Charter Financial Group, as well as a registered representative of Lincoln Financial Advisors and board member of Lincoln Financial’s WISE (Women Inspiring, Supporting, Educating) Group.
“Our M.O.O.D of America survey found that 48 percent of women feel comfortable having conversations about their finances versus 54 percent of their male counterparts,” said Liechty. “We want to get women engaged in financial planning and feel empowered in the process so we can help drive that figure higher. The key is to start a dialogue where we can educate more women on this important topic, and also enable them to create a more secure financial future for themselves and their families.”
In the short video interview, Liechty discusses the following tips:
- Create a Financial Roadmap. Review your spending and saving habits to determine where you want to be financially in the future.
- How to Choose the Right Financial Advisor. Ask your friends for recommendations, tap into online resources and do face-to-face interviews to find someone with whom you are comfortable.
- Start Financial Planning Early. Set aside money for retirement and think about your financial future sooner to help ensure that you are meeting your financial goals, as well as leaving a legacy to the next generation.
Additional financial planning information focused on women is available on Lincoln Financial’s website at www.lincolnfinancial.com/women.
