MUMBAI, July 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Women Financial Advisers Network (WFAN) is Asia's first fee-only Women Financial Advisers Network.

WFAN recently launched its website - www.wfan.in and its larger purpose is in alignment with some of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. These include health and well-being for women, narrowing the gender gap at the workplace, reducing inequalities, help women earn a reasonable income, innovation in business, and through partnerships and collaborations create opportunities for more women to become entrepreneurs. By leveraging on the expertise of Life & Money for its holistic financial wellness programs and the Garrett Planning Network that consists of 250 Financial Advisers serving over 25,000 citizens of USA, WFAN believes it is possible to fulfill the UN Sustainable Development Goals by building and nurturing a thriving community of Independent Women Financial Advisers in India.
WFAN has taken the first step towards achieving these goals by forming the WFAN community on SHEROES, a women's social and economic empowerment community platform with 14 million users currently across geographies. WFAN believes that through this partnership it can empower hundreds and thousands of women to take their first step towards financial independence and lead a balanced and meaningful life.
