A new study has found that women are more in control of their finances than ever before. 55% of women polled say they are the primary financial decision maker in their household. 

Women are also investing more than before, but are less likely to trust their gut instincts about investments than men. Bank of America doesn't think this is a bad thing - on the contrary, women are more apt to do research and build a relationship with an investment expert to make smart, savvy financial decisions. 

Women also want to invest in companies with a positive social impact. They're more likely to invest in companies with diverse hiring practices, green initiatives, and similar action plans.
