Connecting female fund managers to institutional allocators since 2014.

As the largest cap intro event of its kind, Global FundWomen Week (GFWW) spurs connections via 1:1 meetings and roundtable sessions with a diverse network of industry professionals. GFWW provides the platform to explore business opportunities, develop new relationships, and hear allocator perspectives.

Fund Managers

  • You are a female who manages third-party capital – specifically, females (including yourself) manage at least 33% of the portfolio, or comprise at least 33% of the investment committee (or other investment decision making body); AND
  • Your investment strategy focuses on market risk (whether public markets or private markets), not manager risk (i.e., you do not manage a fund of funds); AND
  • Your fund / strategy is currently open for investments to institutional investors or will be accepting allocations within 6 months.
    • For “pre-launch” managers, we expect the firm/fund to be established and registered with the respective regulatory jurisdiction(s).

Please note: You, as the key female risk taker at your fund, must be present at all 1:1 meetings with allocators during GFWW. You will lead the discussion, but you may be accompanied by one supporting team member.  

We can accommodate managers representing strategies within the following categories:

  • Long-Only Equity
  • Long-Only Fixed Income / Credit
  • Hedged Strategies
  • Venture Capital
  • Private Equity
  • Private Credit
  • Real Estate / Real Assets
  • Infrastructure

Please note: The above categories subsume additional “lenses” such as ESG, Impact, Crypto, etc.

Asset Allocators

  • You deploy capital directly to external fund managers in the ordinary course of your business OR you direct the deployment of capital to external fund managers either as an advisor or consultant.
  • You represent an institutional asset allocator either as an employee, advisor or consultant.
    • Institutional asset allocators include endowments, foundations, pension plans (public or private, including superannuation), sovereign wealth funds, outsourced chief investment officers (OCIOs), financial services firms (e.g., wealth managers, funds of funds, seeders/accelerators, insurance firms), qualified family offices or other such allocators.
  • You do not have a conflict of interest in attending meetings with external fund managers.

Please note: Allocators of all genders are welcome to participate.

Manager Applications:

We expect manager applications to be open from Sept 1-30, 2022. All applications will be vetted in line with the above criteria – we may be in touch with applicants to confirm your eligibility. Acceptance is at the discretion of the GFWW Global Committee. We expect to communicate all acceptances / declines no later than Oct 7, 2022.
