During the encounter, AEFI presented the first statistics of women in the FinTech sector, results of their own investigation elaborated with the help of 125 FinTech and InsurTech startups that are members of the association, including MYMOID.

At the event, led by Judith Giner (Vice-president of AEFI) and Paula Cárdenas (Business Manager of AEFI), the association highlighted the most important statistics and conclusions concerning female participation in the FinTech sector, such as:

About 28% of all employees in the FinTech industry are women.

Of them, 48% are Managers, 36% hold other leading positions, and only 2% are CEOs.

Women in FinTech have an average age of between 32 and 36 years.

Women with highest demand in the sector have degrees in Business Administration, MBA, or are specialized in Digital Marketing and Communications.

According to the study carried out by AEFI, the Lending sector is the vertical that employs the highest number of women (27%), followed by Financial Infrastructure (20%), and Payments (14%). The Verticals of Alternative Financing, Insurtech and Blockchain are still behind in female employment, with a percentage of 3% for the first two categories, and only 1% for the Blockchain sector.
