According to the Wall Street Journal and data provider Morningstar only seven percent of investment managers in the $15 trillion US mutual-fund industry in 2015 were female. This is down from 10 percent in 2009.
A disheartening imbalance of women at senior-level positions within the U.S. investment industry is visible more than ever in 2019. A recent study by Catalyst, a New York–based non-profit focused on women’s inclusion in the workplace, found that women hold just 16.1 percent of executive and senior-level positions.

Through a series of categories the inaugural Women in Asset Management Awards, will act as a flagship and high-profile platform for the industry’s wide-reaching diversity efforts.
