Women around the world retire with a quarter less wealth than men, and the gap widens in the highest-skilled roles, Willis Towers Watson found in a study released Thursday.
At retirement, women overall have 74% of the assets of men. In the most skilled roles, they retire with about 62% and in front-line jobs 89%, WTW found in a study of 39 countries. The gap in the US, 75%, fit the global pattern. The highest gap was 60% in Nigeria and the narrowest was 90% in South Korea.
