Cadwalader Celebrates International Women’s Day with Women in the City Event

March 24, 2017

Cadwalader recently celebrated International Women’s Day by hosting an event titled, “Women in Securitization and Structured Finance: Have recent developments in the capital markets opened up more opportunities for women?”

The law firm invited a group of high-profile panelists to share insights and practical tips on developing leadership roles in securitization, structured finance and the capital markets more generally.

The panelists included:

  • Anna Bak, Manager, Securitization, The Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME)
  • Suzanne Bell, Special Counsel, Cadwalader
  • Merryn Craske, Counsel, Cadwalader (moderator)
  • Sara Egan, Team Head, Securitization, BNP Paribas
  • Lynn Maxwell, Managing Director, Head of Global Strategy, Structured Finance Group, HSBC
  • Marjan van der Weijden, Managing Director and Head of European Structured Finance, Fitch Ratings

Merryn Craske commented: “There are a lot of very talented women working in securitization, and as the securitization market grows, this will present opportunities for them to take on more senior roles, develop their skills and contribute to the success of the organizations in which they work.”

The event was the fourth in Cadwalader’s  ‘Women in the City’ program in London, bringing together prominent leaders to share different perspectives and inspiring ideas to help women build successful careers in today’s business community.
