INVESTMENT is an important thing that must be done to achieve financial prosperity. Not a few say that women are reliable in terms of financial management, but when it comes to investing, especially crypto assets, it is often heard that the role of men is the role of men.
According to a report released by a financial product comparison site, Finder, in December 2021, it was noted that around 51% of men in Indonesia own crypto assets compared to 49% of women. Actually this figure has increased from the previous survey in October 2021, the crypto ownership rate for men reached 58% and women 42%.
The Finder survey results are also in line with the growth of crypto asset investors in Tokocrypto. At the end of December 2021, there were around 30% female investors compared to male investors which reached the 70% range. This figure also proves that female investors experienced a significant growth rate.
Tokocrypto VP of Corporate Communication Rieka Handayani said that women’s participation in investing in crypto assets is undeniably still relatively low compared to men. In fact, women have reliable abilities in financial management and at the same time can be #Ready to be better at investing.
“In terms of financial management, women are considered adept at it. In fact, oftentimes, women get the nickname ‘Minister of Finance’ in a family. The ability to invest can also be a way to become an independent and financially independent woman. Women can be the financial savior of a family or can meet their own needs,” said Rieka.
To start investing, women can look at crypto asset instruments. The reason is that this instrument is an investment choice with a budget that is not too large and easy to access. Crypto asset investments have a low to high level of risk, investors just need to adjust to their respective risk profiles.
Women today have tremendous earning potential. One source of income can be through investing in crypto assets. Therefore, it is important for women to start investing and it is better to pay attention to the following things first.
Start as early as possible
Crypto assets are investment instruments that are still relatively new. Therefore, the opportunity to get a better profit can be achieved by starting to invest as early as possible.
For women who want to start investing, they don’t have to think about salary limits or wait to have an established career and are married. Investment is a long-term plan, the results of which can only be enjoyed within a certain period of time. So starting early can be the right move.
Determine investment goals
Women are often hesitant to start investing, due to a lack of self-confidence. However, this can be avoided by setting clear goals or objectives.
Investors must understand what to invest in, what are the goals to be achieved. If the goals are clearly detailed, then the confidence to invest is even more mature. Like, saving the cost of children’s education, or maybe for funds.
