Unleashing the Power of Female Fund Managers .

Fact Sheet | April 3, 2024

Women and diverse fund management teams have better financial returns compared to their peers. Despite the strong evidence, women are severely underrepresented in the investment sector, and the field consistently neglects to allocate sufficient resources to support women, local health systems, climate action, and other pressing issues. Chemonics seeks to deepen the impact of development finance and believes that more women fund managers are needed in the private equity and venture capital (PE/VC) space. Through the Emerging Female Fund Managers (EFFM) Initiative, we are designing an investment platform that values women as investment managers, leaders, and powerful change agents.
