About Us
Our Mission

The mission of the Women's Finance Exchange of Houston (WFE Houston) is to develop professional women working in financial areas by providing networking and learning opportunities in a relationship-driven environment.

WFE Houston is a group of dynamic women who are established in our professions. Most of our members are service providers in the financial disciplines such as banking, accounting, money management, investment banking, private equity, venture capital, corporate securities, law, commercial finance and investor relations counseling.

Our History
The Women's Finance Exchange was founded in 1990 in Atlanta as a forum where women who are active in the financial arena could come together periodically to talk about business issues and to network. The Houston Chapter was formed in 1994 and the Dallas Chapter was formed in 1997.

Our Objectives


* Create and develop a network for professional women with careers in the financial services industry or careers supporting financial services.
* Generate referral partnerships by networking with others in the organization.
* Provide programs that foster professional development and encourage social interaction among members.
* Give back to our community by promoting and enhancing the welfare of all women.
