Building a Gender-Empowered Financial System

The ‘Building a Gender-Empowered Financial System’ insights report provides a three-pronged framework to systematically scale investing in gender equality.

It explores key concepts including (1) the potential for Orange Bonds as a cross-cutting asset class to advance gender-just prosperity, peace, and climate resilience; (2) the need to embrace diversity, equality, and inclusion in decision-making; and (3) the potential to align risk, return, and impact to build transparent, data-driven financial markets.

Taking an ecosystem approach, the report includes recommendations on how various actors can be a part of the Orange Movement™ and transition gender lens investing from strategy to action.
