Why does it matter
Why is it important to meet: Women in FinTech, Finance, Insurance, InsurTech or Asset Management mean an advanced value creation model for these industries.

The latest Deloitte shift report shows that since 1970 we are heading head nose down in the value creation process – not only in these industries.

How do we know? We just need to look at the return on equity and the multiples. They have decreased from 6.3% in the 70ies to 1.3% recently. The fall in returns shows this decline in value creation. Of course, you can outsource, create efficiencies through platforms – Daimler and BMW being a recent example. But..... you can only squeeze the lemon thus far. Efficiency alone will not create the necessary tipping point.... and it is costing a lot of jobs in your home country.

440 out of the 500 Fortune Companies have disappeared from the index within the past 40 years.

Creative disruption or simply lack of diversity? Maybe both? One thing for sure: disruption is "people's business". Technology is just a vehicle. In times of change, it is necessary to be able to take on many different perspectives, bringing together knowledge across industries and across gender with interdisciplinary approaches. That's why impact investors also do team analysis and focus on diversity. It just gives them better returns, more durability and more sustainability. Female perspectives sometimes differ from male perspectives Let us combine them in co-creation.

Take influence of our future. Come and discuss with us. We welcome all supporters and ambassadors for diversity in fintech, blockchain, finance, investing and entrepreneurship.
