Development finance institutions (DFIs) are playing an important role in providing capital to support gender equality, the value of women in leadership and markets and women’s economic empowerment worldwide.
Gender equality, enhancing the rights and the position of women and girls is extremely important to Finnfund. Finnfund is preparing a policy paper on gender equality which is aimed to be ready at the beginning of 2019. More information about the process can be found here.
In November 2018, Finnfund also joined a new Gender Finance Collaborative.
