About KvinnoKapital

Kvinnokapital is a private network of women in asset management. Since September 2019, Kvinnokapital is registered as a non-profit organisation in Sweden.

The industry has come a long way in gender equality, but there is still room for improvement and women as well as men have the power and knowledge to close the diversity gap.

We believe that a local women’s networking group can help build contacts, exchange experience, share knowledge and inspire each other, thereby strengthening women’s position in the Nordic asset management industry.

The network meets regularly to listen to inspiring seminars and presentations over lunch or just for an informal after work. Summary of past events, the list of upcoming events and a job board are available on the website (some parts accessible for members only).

a bit of History

KvinnoKapital started as an informal network around 2013 with a simple email list. The network's founding mother, Julia Axelsson regularly invited the women she knew to drinks after work to mingle and meet new women who work in asset management.

By word of mouth, the network grew and soon the email list was complemented by a LinkedIn group. When the LinkedIn group exceeded 200 members, it became too difficult to manage and the website was set up to help manage member applications.

In 2019, as the network continued to expand, the project of an annual gala dinner started to emerge and with it the necessity to formalise the network into a registered non-profit organisation. And the rest is history!

the Board

KvinnoKapital's activities and operations rely entirely on KvinnoKapital's board, composed on highly motivated and engaged women.

Members are highly encouraged to reach out to the board to propose events, recommend content or support the network by initiatives and ideas.
