“Wealth is a factor of not only how much you make, but how much you keep,” says Cynthia Kett, an advice-only financial advisor and principal at Stewart & Kett Financial Advisors Inc., in Toronto.
When couples visit her office, she makes a point of involving the woman in every conversation.
“Even if she isn’t actively involved in strategic or day-to-day financial decisions, I want her to be at the table because it’s important,” Ms. Kett explains. “She’s got to participate because what if that other person isn’t around any more? You’re leaving yourself extremely exposed.”
