Our panel will discuss the following questions:

  • Funds often have a more entrepreneurial culture and a flat management structure, so why are they not offering more opportunities for women?  Or are they?
  • What unique skills do women bring to this sector?
  • How can a greater gender balance be achieved?
  • Have corporate sponsorship programmes in hedge funds and investment management firms done enough for women?
  • Tips and advice for women starting out in this field.
