The agenda for the 2015 Summit has been built around the top areas of interest that were revealed by a poll of GBA members. Panels this year will focus on Driving Women’s Market Performance, particularly:

  • What She Wants: A compilation of customer insight from GBA members
  • Customer Centricity: Key drivers of Net Promoter Score
  • Segment Value Propositions for very small businesses, the unbanked and the high net worth
  • The Women’s Market for insurance
  • The rise of FinTech and what it means for women as consumers of financial services
  • Building internal buy-in for a Women’s Market strategy

Apart from engaging Best Practice panels and networking events, the 2015 event will feature an Exposure Visit to host Itaú Unibanco and a first-of-its-kind Global Data Symposium, a multi-stakeholder conversation exploring the challenges and opportunities surrounding the collection and use of sex-disaggregated supply and demand data to encourage closing the financial services gap for women.

GBA members have been sent the link to the Summit registration site and their access codes. If you are not a member but are interested in attending the 2015 Summit, please write to with a brief description of your interest in the event.
