Markets Media Group is pleased to present its 5th Annual Markets Choice Awards: Women in Finance event.
In the spirit of Markets Media’s annual Markets Choice Awards, the WIF program recognizes the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance. WIF nominees may come from buy-side and sell- side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, 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 seven-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 40 award winners last year. Categories included Excellence in Leadership, Fixed Income Trader of the Year, Rising Star, Trailblazer, Disruptor of the Year, CEO of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement.
Please join us in November 20th at Tribeca Rooftop for a black-tie evening gala in New York City.
