BRILLIANT THINGS HAPPEN WHEN THE BRIGHTEST MINDS GET TOGETHER.

Extraordinary leaders within the global investment ecosystem were in a room together to drive ground-breaking dialogue and a commitment to moving capital with a gender lens at the world’s first Gender-Smart Investing Summit.

These thought leaders, global influencers, and investment sector trailblazers have pledged their commitment to scaling the gender-smart investment, globally, and we were pleased to welcome them all to London this November.
