Patience Marime-Ball

Patience Marime-Ball is the Impact Chair at Apollo Global Management. She is a seasoned investor who is recognized for using the levers of finance to innovate pathways for creating a more equal world. She has worked alongside investment leaders to catalyze investments in ways that recognize all people as essential drivers of our global economy. Patience has more than 25 years of investment experience across capital markets – including debt and equity financing, large scale infrastructure, distressed assets, as well as venture stage opportunities. Patience has led many “firsts”; she developed the multi-billion-dollar Banking on Women platform at the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and was responsible for co-designing IFC’s multi-billion-dollar Global Trade Liquidity Program.In 2018, she founded Women of the World Endowment, an investment nonprofit focused on centralizing women as economic changemakers while delivering market-rate, risk adjusted returns and impact at scale. She recently co-authored The XX Edge: Unlocking Higher Returns and Lower Risk where she makes the business case for a new paradigm of gender diverse investing where more women have greater decision-making roles and optimize their skills across capital markets—leading to higher returns for individual investors and more inclusive economic growth. Patience serves on the Board of MIO Partners, and on several advisory committees including Emerging Sun LLC, a company she co-founded in 2005. Patience holds a JD from the Pritzker School of Law and an MBA from Kellogg at Northwestern University.
