In the traditionally male-dominated realm of investing, SWS aims to empower women to take hold of their financial futures. Similarly, the future of SWS depends not only on the dedication of its members, but also on the generous support of benefactors. We welcome both men and women supporters to be involved with our financial empowerment movement.

what SWS alums had to say


SWS made the study of finance digestible for me, someone who was previously baffled by its nuances. Its well-planned curriculum and experienced instructors makes the world of finance accessible to any woman interested in learning about investing, no matter her educational background or career interests. SWS Alum, McKinsey & Company


It is lamentable that ambitious women who excel in almost every field of study are lacking the investing skills that could turn their learning into earning. Smart Woman Securities not only offered me unprecedented access to some of today's most knowledgeable and personable individuals in the business and finance world, but also showed me that it was okay to be starting from scratch. It never felt like there was a wasted moment in SWS and I am grateful for the resources invested in my investing potential.  – SWS Alum, Yale Law School
