INFOGRAPHIC: Why Men Are Better At Investing Than Women

Women haven’t earned the best reputation for managing money in recent years. They haven’t planned for retirement, overpay for their mortgages and have so-so maths skills that hold them back from investing.

Oddly enough, each gender thinks they make better decisions than their counterparts.
