International Women's Day

International Women's Day

Tuesday 8 March 2022

At CFA UK we are committed to supporting gender parity in the investment industry. In order to create an inclusive environment, we must continue to amplify the voices of others across the industry. To celebrate International Women's Day 2022 we have collated a few thought provoking articles, videos and webinars that showcase how our members are helping to break the bias in the investment industry.

Breaking the Bias

Women have been inspiring other women throughout history, whether socially, economically, culturally, politically, or through the roles they played within their own families. To celebrate International Women’s Day, Professional Investor asked leading women from the investment industry to talk about the women that inspired them most in their own lives.

Representation of women in portfolio management?

UK figures on fund managers by gender from Morningstar reveal that in the year to end September 2000, women made up 14% of portfolio managers. 21 years later, that figure stands at 11.2%. But given the growth of Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives being run, why haven't the figures risen more substantially?
