The Amundi Women Talent Programme

Equal opportunities is part of Amundi's core values: that is why we wish to support European women golfers over the next five years to enable them to better emerge on the international golf scene.

For this reasons, we launched the Amundi Women Talent Programme.

Through the programme, Amundi supports talented golfers across Europe, Asia and the US, enabling them to reach their full potential on the international golf scene.

The programme sponsors players over a period of time by offering them sporting opportunities and visibility beyond a simple financial contribution.
