Hey, Barbara --
<<And you've always made it clear that investing is the same for women as it is for men. And I agree.
However, I do believe that there are differences between the way men and women receive communications. Just look at the difference between women's and men's magazines for examples of what I'm talking about.>>
I really can't disagree too much. :)
As much as I might want to think there are no differences, or that there just shouldn't be, there just are. Women are in different situations (in general) -- earning less, over fewer years and living longer than men, for example, and women (again, in general) seem to interact differently with investing -- taking less risk, trading less frequently, worrying more, being less confident, etc.
So -- I concede! :)
