Women's average earnings remain about 21% below those of their male counterparts. Lower lifetime earnings translate into reduced Social Security benefits and smaller retirement account balances.

Women Executives: C-Suites Insight: David Hunt

PGIM President and CEO David Hunt discussed the need to correctly understand the ‘active-passive’ debate in a recent interview with Ellen Kinlin, CEO of the Kinlin Company, for her Women Executives C-Suite Insights blog. Hunt said, “Our active strategies are designed to work in an investor’s portfolio in such a way that they complement a selection of more easily accessible beta, which we believe also plays a role in many investors’ portfolios. In other words, this is a question of how alpha and beta should work together — and not a question of one or the other.” Hunt also discussed the role of alternatives in a portfolio, along with the need for increased diversity within the investment management industry.
