TORONTO, Sept. 24, 2013 /CNW/ - Global Women's Equity Fund (the "GWEF")
is pleased to announce the publication of its second quarterly
newsletter entitled: "The Times, They are a Changing…too slowly!"
GWEF is categorized as a Gender Lens investment fund. It will appeal to
socially responsible investors, mainly women, who are looking to
promote concepts and ideals that they feel strongly about. GWEF will
invest globally in publicly traded companies that have demonstrated
their support for women's causes and are leaders in promoting gender
equality in the workplace.
GWEF's strict investment mandate dictates that the investment manager
will invest only in companies that have actively promoted the
advancement of women. Inclusion in the portfolio would require
companies to meet some or all of the following:
Companies that have signed and adhere to the Women's Empowerment
Principles-Equality Means Business disseminated by the United Nations
Companies that employ at least 25% or more women directors or executive
Companies that have provided financial support and are members of

opportunities for women and/or;
Companies that have signed and adhere to the Women on the Board Pledge
