Gender Lens Investing in Financial Intermediaries
Gender lens investing – an investment strategy that uses capital to address gender inequalities between women and men – is one approach that investors and financial institutions are increasingly adopting. Given the fact that women around the globe have been impacted more severely by the pandemic, it is more important than ever to direct capital towards solutions that drive gender equality. By considering the full scope of the business case, companies can unlock opportunities for increased profit, growth, and innovation.
In this webinar Financial Alliance for Women, a global consortium of financial institutions driving women’s wealth creation; two SME Finance Forum members including Triodos, a globally active impact investor working to address critical sustainability challenges, and Lucy, a neobank built to help women who are overlooked, underestimated, and underbanked; and IFC’s Gender and Economic Inclusion Group will showcase techniques and best practices in delivering financing solutions with a gender focus.
This webinar is organized in partnership with IFC Gender and Economic Inclusion Group.
