This 2018 report includes 44 women making their first appearance on the list. The report highlights women leading all verticals in hedge funds, allocators to hedge funds and associated service providers. It features portfolio managers as well as a wide range of C-suite roles – CIOs, CROs, CEOs, CFOs and COOs – along with general counsel, HR professionals, sales, marketing and business development professionals, and investor relations professionals. Some of the women in this report wear multiple hats. The majority have studied one or more of: finance, economics, MBAs, accountancy or law; some are also CFA and/or CAIA charterholders. Asset managers in this report run between $1 billion and $40 billion in alternatives.
“We congratulate the truly exceptional women represented in the 2018 edition of the 50 Leading Women in Hedge Funds report – not just because they are women, but because they exemplify success and leadership, and are an inspiration to others. They are an elite group of professionals who are leading by example and shaping the future of the industry,” said Natalie Deak Jaros, a Partner in the Financial Services Office of EY and co-lead of EY’s Global Hedge Fund Practice.
“Though the report may be perceived as a “ranking” or a list of “top” women, it is neither. Nor is it an exclusive list. The featured women are examples of leading women who, by virtue of the senior roles they fulfil, should be an inspiration to those following in their wake,” said Hamlin Lovell, Contributing Editor of The Hedge Fund Journal and the author of the report.
“This is the sixth edition of our 50 Women report and I am pleased to report that interest in the report continues to grow. We are hosting events in New York and London to accompany the launch of the report and both events – New York on 2 October and London on 10 October – are sell-outs. We are very grateful to EY who have sponsored this report, and the last five reports,” said Rod Sparks, Publisher of The Hedge Fund Journal.
