We are a community of professionals using finance for good. From networking events to peer coaching groups, workshops and retreats, we connect you with likeminded individuals and experts who share and shape your views.
We host workshops, retreats and convenings on key topics in responsible and sustainable finance. If we don’t offer it, we connect you with great development opportunities with other organisations.
We believe finance professionals are uniquely placed to transform finance from the inside out, and it’s our job to equip you with the things you need to create change yourself.
We share the belief that the finance can be a force for good. We also recognize that the financial system of the future will be what we make it.
As Gen Y women working our way through the City’s top financial institutions, we have found many opportunities to have a greater impact with our roles – from the way we serve clients, to the products we design, to the values we uphold and even what we do with our income. This is inspiring, and daunting.
On our own journey to do things differently, we’ve learned a lot about what works. We have a good idea about when you need guidance, when you need knowledge, when you need inspiration, and when you just need a connection to that right person who will get you on your way. We started Finance Matters in 2012 as part of this journey.
Finance Matters is designed to help you take advantage of the opportunities you have to increase your own impact on our society & environment. We want you to have access to inspiring peers and leaders, to get short and sweet guidance on new models like impact investing or on the relevance of climate change for our industry, and to get referrals to the right impact-focused job or volunteer opportunity for you. Being able to share your stories of success with others through our online and offline community is icing on the cake.
We’re building Finance Matters as we grow, to help you grow, too.
