Why women know too little about financial topics – and what has to change
Interview with MEA's Dr. Tabea Bucher-Koenen in German magazine "Brigitte"
Dr. Tabea Bucher-Koenen of MEA has developed a three-item-test that helps to examine the financial know-how of women in Germany and in international comparison. In this test, female and male respondents were asked to answer questions about interests, the interaction of interests and inflation as well as risks in asset-management. On average, women performed worse in this test than men, irrespective of age, thus creating a knowledge gap between women and men.
