We are delighted to announce that on November 1, 2016 EXANTE will be hosting a reception for 100 Women in Hedge Funds' event in Valletta. On this day the foundation will launch its newest global hub in Malta which has a flourishing investment community where women occupy all kinds of leadership positions.
100 Women in Hedge Funds (100WHF) is a world-wide industry association which incorporated in 2001 as a not-for-profit organization for various educational and philanthropic activities. During the official reception Amanda Pullinger, CEO of 100WHF, will present a brief overview of the global organization, which now has more than 15,000 members worldwide in 21 locations, and give an overview of upcoming events.
Recently, as Patron of 100 Women in Hedge Funds' philanthropic initiatives, Prince William opened a gala dinner in The UK and praised the organisation for its business acumen and for the funds raised by the organisation for numerous charities.

As official hosts, we in EXANTE believe that the success of this organisation is self evident in the profile and public relation it offers to women.
'Moving financial services firms towards gender balance requires a mix of bolder structural solutions and more profound underlying cultural change', says EXANTE’s Communication Director Patrick O'Brien in his article for FinanceMalta.
