2017 Women in Finance Award Winners Announced

November 10, 2017| 1 min. read
11.07.17 // Markets Media:  The third annual Markets Choice Awards: Women in Finance luncheon took place on Tuesday, November 7.

Held at Tao Downtown in Manhattan’s trendy Meatpacking District, the event convened nearly 400 market professionals from institutional investment firms, hedge funds, trading desks at the biggest global banks, exchanges, trading platforms, 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 hammered out the winners.

Congratulations to the winners!
