More than half of women in Hong Kong consider that they are financially independent, according to a survey conducted by Fidelity International. The survey showed that six in 10 women in the city feel they are financially independent. More women also expect to become financially independent at age 37, four years ahead of the expectation of men. Financial independence held by women in Hong Kong is about having a personal income that can cover daily expenses and bills and not having to rely on others for financial support. Women in Hong Kong also reported they owned an average of HK$659,634 in savings and HK$709,334 in investments, which are both about 10% less than men. The survey also showed that only 48% of women are confident in making investment decisions compared to 56% of men.
