Fidelity Women & Money Report

We first established Fidelity International’s Women and Money campaign to understand many of the challenges women face when it comes to financial empowerment, from the gender pay, pension, savings and investment gaps that stand between men and women.

However, many of these challenges exist around the world exist the world, and for the first time we have looked at the experiences and views of women across six markets - the UK, Germany, Japan, Hong Kong SAR, Taiwan and mainland China - to better understand and address the barriers they face. 

In this, our third report, we explore how women in each of the six markets choose to manage their money and their attitudes towards investing; the long-term consequences this can have upon their retirement outlook; and the impact of the pandemic has had upon their financial outlook.

While the findings reveal many of these barriers are universal, they also present a more positive picture of markets in which they are being overcome to help women harness their financial power to invest and plan for the long-term.
