Aimed at promoting a more inclusive asset management industry, InvestmentNews parent Bonhill Group plans to hold its 2021 Women in Asset Management USA Awards on Sept. 9, live in New York City. It’s accepting online nominations through May 24.
The awards will recognize role models, advocates and allies across the U.S. asset management industry, celebrating the accomplishments of individuals and firms that have championed diversity and responsible investment decisions.
The percentage of female fund managers has been hovering around 14% for the past 20 years and in the U.S., women represented just 11% of all portfolio managers at the end of 2020, according to Morningstar. The data are slightly brighter when viewed from the perspective of percentage of funds with at least one female manager. About 13% of all U.S. funds have at least one female manager.
Nominate financial professionals and firms for 20 different categories of recognition, including ESG Investment Manager, DEI Initiative, Global Equities Leader, Male Ally and Woman of the Year.
The 2020 awards were cancelled due to Covid-19, but 2019 winners are shown here.
