Connect, Elevate, and Advance Women Leaders

Women in Derivatives has a new name: Women in Financial Markets (WIFM)! We passionately believe that our new name better echoes and reflects feedback we’ve received from our members and sponsors, and expands our mission to connect, elevate, and advance women across the global financial markets ecosystem beyond derivatives.

This rebranding is more than just a change of name; it signifies our focus on driving change and cultivating a more equitable and inclusive environment for more women. We are so proud of what we’ve been able to accomplish since we launched in 2007 and the size and scope of our growing 6000+ global membership base is a testament to the incredible expertise, diversity, and leadership within our network.

Join us on our journey to drive change through education, mentorship, and creating meaningful connections within the financial markets landscape.
