LGBTQ Financial Experience
- Registration Closed
The LGBTQ population contains between 16 - 20 million people in the US, with an estimated $884 billion in buying power as of 2014. Yet, LGBT investors tend to be more conservative and less diversified in their investing preferences than those of non-LGBT investors. Many same-sex couples say they need assistance with financial planning because of unique financial situations facing LGBT investors.
