Women in Finance Asia Awards — Nominations Close April 7

Nominations for Markets Media Group’s Women in Finance Asia Awards close on Wednesday, April 7 — please nominate today! The 3rd-annual WIFAA program is shaping up strongly with many excellent nominations in categories such as Rising Star, CEO of the Year, Lifetime Achievement, Excellence in Trading, Trailblazer, and many more. The Women in Finance Asia Awards recognize and celebrate the most talented and accomplished women across Asia. WIFAA nominees come from buy-side and sell- side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, fintech start-ups — any area within the financial sector. Once nominees are put forth by readers of GlobalTrading (FIXGlobal.com) and MarketsMedia.com, shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIFAA Advisory Board. Save the date – the Women in Finance Asia Awards program will be webcast on Thursday, May 20, at 4:30 p.m. Hong Kong time. We expect to return to Hong Kong next year for a live awards reception, as we did for the inaugural WIFAA event in 2019.
