Markets Media and GlobalTrading are pleased to present Markets Choice Awards Asia: Women in Finance event, which will take place in Hong Kong in May 2019 around the FIX Trading Summit Asia.
Markets Media Group has been hosting Women in Finance Awards in New York since 2015. This highly regarded event has quadrupled from about 100 attendees in 2015 to more than 400 last year. The market reception reflects the fact that women are an indomitable force in the financial sector, and their influence and stature will only expand in the future. We believe same holds in Asia. With your support we would like to recreate this industry event for the Asian market to recognize and promote the female talent in the region.
WIF program recognizes the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance. WIF nominees may come from buy-side and sell- side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, start-ups — really any area within the financial sector.
Nominees will be first put forth by readers of GlobalTrading Journal and MarketsMedia.com, and shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIF Advisory Board. As with our six- year-old Markets Choice Awards franchise, our methodology in selecting nominees and then winners for Women in Finance is simple yet thorough, and keeps the focus on the important opinions: those of market participants, not ours. Categories include Excellence in Leadership, Fixed Income Trader of the Year, Rising Star, Trailblazer, Disruptor of the Year, CEO of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement to name a few.
Please join us in May 2019 as we recognize and celebrate the best of the best among women in Asian financial markets.
