Did you know that?
40% of global wealth is held by women
40% of entrepreneurs around the world are women
female entrepreneurs are 30% less likely to have access to sufficient funding for their businesses compared to men.
According to Harvard Business School, venture capital firms that increased female partner hires by 10% saw an average 1.5% rise in annual fund returns. We need more women in financial services but how can we bring them into the industry?
To explore this issue, we're holding a Women in Finance webinar on Wednesday 1 July with a panel of experts who are all leaders in their respective roles in financial services.
