This week, proof that investing isn’t a one-size-fits-all. Here are this week’s top reads for women and money from around the web.

Editor’s picks of the week

  1. Alpha and Beta? For women, it’s less about pure investment returns and more about “Do I have enough money to stay in my house?”
  2. Corporate governance, or lack thereof, is in the spotlight at Bombardier. This is a good reminder that as investors we’re buying a small piece of a business—and we deserve a say in its governance. (Of course, it helps when institutional investors weigh in.)
  3. Are women really all that anxious when it comes to investing? Certainly not—especially as philanthropists.
  4. “People say that money is not the key to happiness, but I always figured if you have enough money you can have a key made.” —Joan Rivers
  5. Great Canadian comic Samantha Bee takes on “Women Who Work”.
  6. For investors, the more weight gain, the better.
