The vision of Women in Fund Finance is that the increased engagement and participation of women in the Fund Finance (“FF”) industry encourages better leadership, decision-making and performance for the FF community. Ultimately, greater diversity in the FF industry will provide for enhanced performance for funds, financiers and their advisors and will provide for a more complete voice in advocating the overall mission of the Fund Finance Association.
Our mission is the increased engagement, recognition and promotion of women leaders within the FF Industry. Women in Fund Finance seeks to help women succeed in three ways:
Connecting with women interested in and already part of the FF community at a variety of events and activities sponsored by Women in Fund Finance including annual events in connection with the FFA Symposiums.
Creating a forum in which women may learn about FF and our industry, share expertise, experience and challenges and recognize and celebrate successes. Through such forum, we aim to help women develop enhanced skills and gain market knowledge that will empower them to enter into our industry, succeed and advance in their careers. Additionally, we will educate and engage other stakeholders in FF, including male colleagues, with respect to the benefits of diversity in the FF industry.
