Women in Investment Management Initiative

This initiative aims to improve investor outcomes by encouraging gender diversity in the investment management profession. 

Why Gender Diversity

  • Women are a minority in investment management across global markets, making them the “universal diversifier”
  • We believe an initial focus on gender diversity will yield lessons applicable to other dimensions of diversity

Goals of the Initiative

  • Increase the number of women who join the profession and earn the CFA® charter
  • Retain women in the profession and influence culture from within
  • Create demand for diversity as an industry imperative
