Women in Finance Award Winners Announced
It was a banner event on a rainy afternoon!
The second annual Markets Choice Awards: Women in Finance luncheon took place on Tuesday, November 15.
Held at Tao Downtown in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District, the event convened more than 250 market professionals from institutional investment firms, hedge funds, trading desks at the biggest global banks, exchanges, and technology providers.
The awards methodology was as follows: Markets Media’s editorial team identified the best candidates via interviews with the senior market participants who are their colleagues, customers and competitors, as well as online submissions from Markets Media’s subscriber base. From there, consultations with our WIF Advisory Board winnowed the field to the most deserving recipients, and final internal deliberations — often not easy — hammered out the winners.
Congratulations to the winners!
