W by ATB recognizes that women want and need something different from a Financial Institution. Women have different expectations of a relationship with a Financial Institution and inherently think and make decisions differently.
Our mission is to create a banking experience that supports women’s success in a way that aligns with how women show up in this world. Afterall, 50% of businesses started in Alberta are by women. It has been projected that a 10% increase in women owned businesses in Canada could add $198B to our GDP. We envision a world where we power possibilities for women business owners and leaders to be the most successful version of themselves.
