Inspiring women in financial services


Empowering the international COO Community

  • They are the ambassadors of conduct with ‘COO’ a trademark for ethical behaviour

  • This executive community is uniquely positioned to transform financial services

  • iCOOC’s mission is to help them meet this challenge by working better together
