Bring colleagues and join us on International Women’s Day - Wednesday 8 March 2017 - for our next Women in the City event which is focused on securitisation and structured finance.

Cadwalader has invited a group of high profile panellists to share insights and practical tips on developing leadership roles in securitisation, structured finance and the capital markets more generally.

Our Panelists:

  • Anna Bak, Manager, Securitisation, The Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME)
  • Suzanne Bell, Special Counsel, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP
  • Merryn Craske, Counsel, Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP

  • 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

Our panel will discuss the following questions:

  • Women in securitisation- are women putting themselves forward as candidates and if not, why not?
  • What skills are required to work in structured finance and why are women so under-represented?
  • Is the sector acknowledging the need for diversity of opinion?
  • What steps can women take to be successful in securitisation and structured finance?
  • What can be done to encourage greater diversity in capital markets?
