Women in Finance

We’ve got some big numbers on our books with over 3700 brokers around the country. And it’s no surprise we attract some of the best names in the business. 

One particular number we’re super keen to see growing is the number of female brokers in the industry and at AFG. The finance game has traditionally been known as a male dominated industry, but it’s one that has been changing rapidly with the number of female entrants on the rise.

This is so rewarding to see given the benefits of diversity in business. Diversity and inclusion drives a business’s ability to attract, retain, motivate and develop the best talent, create an engaged workforce, deliver the highest quality services to customers and continue to grow.

Today, about 24 per cent of AFG brokers around the country are women. Whilst this is a great number, we’re keen to see it double.

Diversity is widely regarded as a key driver of business growth, one that helps foster creativity and innovation. It drives better business decisions and it gives companies a key competitive advantage. When it comes to people, a broad set of experiences and different ways of looking at things often lead to more points of view, better ideas, faster ways of solving problems or ways to leverage opportunities.

Our Women on the Move program is designed to support and advance women in finance broking and includes a range of initiatives such as:

  • National calendar of networking events
  • Scholarship based mentoring program
  • Cross industry guest speakers
  • Partnership with industry forums
