About Us

The Financial Alliance for Women

Founded in 2000, the Financial Alliance for Women – formerly the Global Banking Alliance for Women – is the only global consortium of financial institutions dedicated to supporting one another as they seek to tap into the opportunity of the Women’s Market. Our members work in more than 135 countries to build innovative, comprehensive programs that deliver women the tools that they need to succeed, including access to capital, information, education and markets.

Membership in the Alliance provides financial institutions access to a unique global community of peers that have proven the business case for serving women. As a close network of practitioners, the Alliance provides a wide range of services to help organizations design, implement and refine effective Women’s Market programs. The Alliance also seeks to use its collective voice to advocate for greater awareness of women’s vital economic role as consumers, investors and job-creating entrepreneurs.
