This will be achieved using two approaches:
- The first is academic, through empirical researches, publications in financial journals verifying the existence of this relationship, seeking the influence of factors such as the development (frontiers, emerging or developed markets), culture, religion, education… of the countries in question.
- The second is financial by creating a financial portfolio strategy as measured by an index into the final objective to propose investable products as funds or structured products. The index thus constructed will be somehow a continuous measurement of the performance if any. In the second step, if the data are available, we extend this research to private equities.
Outside the academic and financial interests of the Women CEO Project, this project also has significant social aspects:
- Motivate and embolden women to contribute to society and the economy, inspire women managers/leaders and young businesswomen.
- Promote the empowerment of women and public awareness of women’s roles, especially in economic leadership, offer further evidence for policy-makers to devise more women empower policies.
This project started from Vietnam in 2013, will be extended this year to Asia and Europe, and finally cover most of countries in the world in 2015 (see Newsletter see for calendar).
