About Women’s World Banking Asset Management (WAM)

WAM is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Women’s World Banking. It manages the Women’s World Banking impact investment program, including a co-managed USD 50M private equity fund, WWB Capital Partners, LP (Fund I), and a solely-managed USD 100M private equity fund, WWB Capital Partners II (“WWBCP II” or “Fund II”). WWBCP makes direct minority equity investments in high-performing, women- focused, inclusive finance institutions worldwide, and provides technical assistance to improve client and staff gender diversity.

About Women’s World Banking

Women’s World Banking is the global leader in women’s financial inclusion. Rooted in our deep understanding of the women’s market, we tackle financial inclusion in three interconnected ways: first, by partnering with financial services providers to develop scalable market-driven solutions; second, through our gender-lens private equity funds; and, finally, because diverse institutions are proven to be stronger, we build institutional capacity through leadership and diversity programs. Through this holistic approach and our global reach of 51 institutions in 28 countries, we accelerate economic opportunity for low-income women and growth for financial service providers in the emerging markets.
