We have all heard the phrase ‘the future is female’, and for financial services, we at FGS couldn’t agree more! We are all at different stages in our career from coordinators to senior executives, but the one thing that has brought us together is our love for finance and FinTech! In honour of International Women’s Day, we reached out to our team and our partners in the ecosystem to ask: what does it mean to be a woman in financial services and to share any advice that they might have for future generations entering the field. Read on to hear the stories of some incredible women and men in financial services, and join us in celebrating women who are driving change forward.
Since 2016, we have helped transform companies looking to innovate within financial services and analyze specific FinTech markets to find new opportunities, leveraging our FinTech database.
