Principal, Head of Strategic Retirement Consulting
Genders, Generations and 401(k) Plans
Guest: Margaret Rux
You might have heard that men are from Mars and women are from Venus, you also might understand a thing or two about Millenials, Gen Xers and Baby Boomers. However, what you might not realize is that having a better grasp on how different generations and genders approach preparing for retirement could actually help you improve your retirement plan health. My guest, Margaret Rux, is a principal and head of Vanguard Strategic Retirement Consulting. Margaret shares great insights from their research on the differences between the generations and genders in retirement plans. For plan sponsors, she shares strong evidence that your go forward plan design can be the great equalizer between historical differences between the groups.
