GlobalTrading, a Markets Media Group editorial platform, is pleased to present the fourth-annual Women in Finance Asia Awards, which is anticipated to take place in Hong Kong in May 2022.
The inaugural WIFAA program, held at Four Seasons Hong Kong in 2019, was a great success with 150 top executives and 14 winners representing many of the top traders, technologists and senior capital markets executives in Asia. The event pivoted to a virtual format in 2020 and 2021 and expanded to more than 20 awards with winners from BlackRock, Credit Suisse, HSBC Asset Management and other large, influential global financial firms.
Virtual formats are great but we look forward to returning to the energy, spirit and fun that only in-person events can provide.
Last year’s WIFAA winners included some of the most dynamic and accomplished professional women who have made their names in the financial centers of Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney. Winners included Joanna Kwok of JP Morgan Asset Management for Excellence in Asset Management; Debra Lim of Instinet for CEO of the Year; Felicity Chan of Credit Suisse for Trailblazer; and Deborah Ho of BlackRock for Lifetime Achievement.
Following the awards program, WIFAA winners recounted stories of their career in articles and podcasts that ran on GlobalTrading and Markets Media.
As with other Markets Media Group awards programs, WIFAA program recognizes the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance: buy-side and sell-side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, and fintech start-ups. Nominees are put forth by readers of GlobalTrading and MarketsMedia, and shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIFAA Advisory Board.
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.
Please join us in May 2022 as we recognize and celebrate the best of the best women in Asian financial markets!
