About FSIX

In 1983, a dozen gay bankers began meeting to share ideas and contacts in an open and accepting environment without fear of employer retaliation due to their sexual orientation. Within one year, the group incorporated and became known as The New York Bankers Group (NYBG). By the mid-1990s, NYBG expanded to include LGBT financial professionals in industries other than banking and, in 2002, officially changed its name to Financial Services Industry Exchange (FSIX).

Now in its fourth decade, FSIX is the only independent LGBTQ networking organization in the financial services industry. With chapters in New York and Los Angeles, FSIX continues to expand its presence by fostering a collaborative, fun, and safe environment for financial professionals across the US to network and advance their careers. FSIX members work at financial services firms and their allies and span the banking, hedge fund, asset and investment management, accounting, consulting, real estate, and legal sectors. The FSIX Board of Directors consists of an all-volunteer group of professionals dedicated to serving the LGBTQ community.
