Four months since becoming the title sponsor of the only women's golf major in continental Europe - renamed "The Amundi Evian Championship" -, Amundi is launching two new programs to support women and young talent: the Amundi Women Talent and the Amundi Young Talent Programs, respectively.
Driven by our commitment to diversity and equality, Europe's leading asset manager with more than 1.75 trillion euros of assets under management, confirms its support for the development of women's sports.
Through its Amundi Women Talent program, Amundi will commit to delivering financial support to five European women golfers for a period of two years, in order to help raise their profile on the international golfing stage. Other actions will also be implemented throughout the year to support the selected golfers.
The following five players have been selected:
- CAMILLE CHEVALIER – France
2020 Ladies European Tour ranking : 86th
International ranking : 563rd / Ranked 9th French player
- LUCREZIA COLOMBOTTO ROSSO – Italy
2020 Ladies European Tour ranking : 24th
International ranking: 379th / Ranked 2nd Italian player
- KAROLIN LAMPERT – Germany
2020 Ladies European Tour ranking : 5th
International ranking: 279th / Ranked 6th German player
- LUCIE MALCHIRAND – France

- LUNA SOBRON GALMES – Spain
2020 Ladies European Tour ranking : 12nd
International ranking: 236th / Ranked 4th Spanish player
In addition, Amundi will support the younger generation by supporting nine young French talents selected during the U18 tournament in Evian, whose objective is to enter the university recruitment process in the United States, in partnership with the AJGA (American Junior Golf Association).
Alain Berry, Head of Communications at Amundi, said: "Equal opportunities are part of Amundi's core values and we consider diversity - in all its forms - to be a real asset for society and for the company. We are delighted to be able to contribute to the visibility of these four promising players and to allow the new generation to capitalize on their performances to study abroad.”
Amundi, which has been involved in golf since 2011, took a new step in February by becoming the title sponsor of the women's golf major in Evian for the next five years, which was renamed "The Amundi Evian Championship" for the occasion.
