Princess Máxima of the Netherlands has been appointed at the United Nations Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance, as was announced by the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon.

“Your extensive knowledge and expertise makes you a perfect choice for this important undertaking. You will be able to work for the well-being of so many people who need the United Nations,” he said. In her new role, Princess Máxima will advise the Secretary-General on financial matters regarding developing countries, as well as travel the globe extensively to promote inclusive finances. She will also work to ensure that financial services are available to all, not just developed nations.

This position is not HRH’s first role in the United Nations. In 2005, she was a member of the Advisors Group for the International Year of Microcredit. A year later, she joined the Advisors Group on Inclusive Financial Sectors, and was a member of the group’s executive committee. Working with roles in finance draws on HRH’s previous knowledge and experience in the banking industry. Prior to her 2002 marriage to the Prince of Orange, Máxima worked in New York and Brussels for the Deutsche Bank as an investment banker.
