Why are Indian women investing in stocks and mutual funds?
There has been a surge in females investing in stocks, and mutual funds post the Covid-19 pandemic
Women have broken the glass ceiling in all spheres of life, from politics to education. However, Indian working women lag behind their male counterparts regarding investing and financial decision making. Only 7% of women in India invest independently through self-learning, as per Women & Money Power 2022 survey released by LXME, a financial platform for women. In association with Axis My India, the survey was carried out among 4,000 women across different age groups, life stages and occupations across metros, tier II and III cities.
