More women are in control of their finances and the financial wellbeing of their families and their businesses than ever before.

Important decisions about wealth, taxes, estate planning, and insurance now fall under a woman’s umbrella and it’s raining!

In this interactive panel of local experts, you’ll learn key things to consider and have actionable take-aways in each of these significant areas.
