It’s a smart strategy to allocate part of your portfolio towards investments in women-led companies. Pique Fund has so far invested in four growing, women-led companies that are making a positive difference for children, working families, small and medium-sized businesses, and communities and more exciting and impactful opportunities are on the horizon.
