Women in Finance Awards 2017
Markets Media is pleased to present its 3rd Annual Markets Choice Awards: Women in Finance event, which will kick off Markets Media Week on November 7, 2017.
In the spirit of our annual Markets Choice Awards, the WIF program will recognize some of the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance and capital markets. WIF nominees may come from buy-side and sell- side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, hedge funds, exchanges and trading platforms, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms and start-ups — really any area within the financial sector.
Nominees are first put forth by readers of MarketsMedia.com and TradersMagazine.com, and shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIF Advisory Board. As with our five-year-old Markets Choice Awards franchise, our methodology in selecting nominees and then winners for Women in Finance is simple yet thorough, and keeps the focus on the important opinions: those of market participants, not ours.
There were more than 20 award winners last year. Categories included Lifetime Achievement, Rising Star, Excellence in Market Structure, Individual Achievement, Excellence in FinTech, Excellence in Trading, and Excellence in Investment Management.
Women are a gathering force throughout finance, and we are proud to recognize the best of the best.
