Of the more than 1,645 billionaires on the latest Forbes list, only 172 are women. And only 32 of them are self-made, the rest having made their money from marriage or inheritance.
Why aren't there more, given the strides women have made in the rest of the economy? And do men and women create wealth differently?
A new study from Spectrem Group suggests that when it comes to creating wealth, women have a different experience and perspective than men. The survey asked men and women millionaires about the factors that led to their wealth.
Women were more likely to cite frugality, family connections and financial advice, while men were talked more about luck, risk-taking and running their own business.
