WOMEN IN FUNDS is a social community for the female leaders working in the private investment funds industry (hedge, PE, venture, credit, crypto and real estate funds) and select senior leaders at law firms, allocators, banks and industry consultants. Members represent over 50 funds.
WOMEN IN FUNDS' objective is to create opportunity and support for members through its tight-knit community for leading women in the investment funds industry. We value camaraderie, teamwork and positivity. We connect members with each other and other influential game changers at social and charitable events. We educate on developing industry trends and skills. We inspire each other to support women in the industry, create new opportunities through partnerships, and focus on becoming more extraordinary.
WOMEN IN FUNDS is simultaneously a catalyst for and a supporter of, female momentum. Women are still a minority at investment funds, making up only ~ 11% of senior roles.
WOMEN IN FUNDS believes that the creation of our community will result in a reduction in the loss of female talent, an expansion in the proportion of female talent in the senior ranks, and the creation of new synergies and opportunities for dealmaking. Cognitive diversity is beneficial to the investment world and women alike.
WOMEN IN FUNDS was founded in 2016 out of a conviction that female leaders in the investment funds industry deserve a tight-knit social community designed to meet their particular career needs.
WOMEN IN FUNDS wants its members to BE EXTRAORDINARY in their careers.
The only organization of its kind in the investment fund industry, our community brings together talented female investment fund leaders in legal, IR, trading, tax, investment, compliance and operations. We encourage you to support one another and move forward together.
We welcome and invite men to join us in the conversation and attend our events.
We are based in NYC.
