Compagnie Monégasque de Banque (CMB) celebrated the second graduation ceremony of the Academy Women and Finance on March 27, at which all twenty participants were awarded a diploma.

Marie-Hélène Parisi founded the CMB Academy in 2016, based on the observation that a woman may need to take on the reins of family or entrepreneurial finance in the course of her life. The Academy Women and Finance is an educational programme aimed to empower female clients to assume responsibility for the management of family wealth.

The training programme makes CMB a pioneer in the field. “It is the first Private Bank to offer such a structured academic programme to its clients,” said Werner Peyer, CEO of the bank.

The nine modules completed by the participants over the course of one year enable them to take on a leading role in managing family wealth. Topics include financial markets, asset allocation, and behavioural finance covered in 27 hours of lessons.

“Our students are highly motivated,” said Ms Parisi. “Their desire to learn and their ability to understand complex mechanisms have made the session a real success.”

The Quatuor Jaëlle – a female string quartet supported by CMB and an official partner of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Monte-Carlo – provided the musical background for the occasion.
