Only 17% of the US population is using a financial advisor, says a 2019 CNBC study. So, why aren’t more people investing time in retirement planning or using a financial advisor, especially women who are more likely to be in charge of household finances? Successful women aren’t likely to focus on investments or financial goals because they haven’t found an advisor they trust or one who listens to them. Women face unique challenges their male counterparts may not understand and it creates a lack of confidence in male advisors. As we grow our businesses and generate profit, how can we be smart and savvy about taking care of our personal financial goals and well-being? Host Mary Foley speaks with Emily Robbins, Account Vice President at Virginia Asset Group and Financial Advisor at Infinex Investments, about how successful women can integrate all aspects of their lives into their long and short term financial goals. Emily has over 10 years of experience in the Banking and Finance Industry, and she works with individual investors and corporate clients to achieve their financial goals. Emily became a financial advisor to help her banking clients who felt they were not being listened to. When she's not helping her clients she can be found spending time with her husband and children, in Chesapeake VA.
