WISF is an international organisation that aims to transform the financial industry into a sustainable industry and leverages the high interest of women in sustainable finance by combining two powerful forces: feminine energy and capital. With the combination of female energy, sustainable finance and private capital we create a positive impact and balance environmental, social and governance practices in a way that the people living on our planet today can meet their needs without comprimising the ability of future generations to meet their own. We strongly believe in the power of co-creation and therefore we connect internationally with the right partners to leverage on each others’ strengths.
