We are on a mission to make gender diversity the norm in finance. Not a trend.

Because everyone deserves to go after the career they desire.

Who are we?

Get to know us, Mélanie and Léonie, the founders of FxF. We are here to provide women with all the aspects that we missed during our journey of starting our careers in the financial sector. Together, we will make gender diversity the norm in finance.

Why we started FxF.

Launched in October 2021, Female x Finance is the first platform for women in finance, by women in finance. During our attempt to break into finance, we noticed that there were still several bumps in the road. While studying you learn a lot about finance. But, they do not teach you about the several financial sectors, companies, career opportunities, and the career path that will suit you best.

Most of the time, you’ll get in touch with companies from your own direct network and get informed and inspired by people closest to you. When you only see men dominating the field, it’s challenging to see yourself between them. “You can’t be it, if you can’t see it”, right? Nevertheless, we both made it in the financial sector and ended up doing several internships. Unfortunately, we saw a huge outflow of women, and their complications to stay into finance.

We noticed the lack of network of women in finance (the term ‘old boys network’ exists for a reason), the lack of insights in the industry, companies, career opportunities, and the lack of guidance to choose the right career path for you. We’re here to fix that.

To make a difference, we have to do it differently. So, we created a platform where companies can make their sector and themselves visible, attractive, and inviting. Together with our partners we help women to break into finance based on the FxF Formula: Network, Educate and Match. We are on a mission to drastically increase the female talent pool and to get more women in finance.
