DUBLIN, July 18, 2017
Leading RegTech company, AQMetrics, today announced its successful second annual “Women in Funds” event, hosted in Berlin on June 14, 2017. As part of FundForum International, attended by 1,400 asset managers, fund selectors and distributors, AQMetrics, along with co-sponsors Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH) and FundForum, joined forces to bring together a growing network of senior men and women supporting the growth of the number of female professionals in the funds space.
With a 100% increase in attendance over last year, this year’s networking event saw an impressive 90% of female CXOs at FundForum attend with a notable increase in the number of middle and senior management participants and male attendees. A growing number of participants expressed an interest in leading Women in Funds initiatives at their own firms as well as in conjunction with AQMetrics.
“As an entrepreneur with over 20 years in the funds management sector, I’ve seen firsthand how talented female professionals are increasingly shaping and driving value across the industry,” said Geraldine Gibson, CEO of AQMetrics. “As a female-led firm, AQMetrics is honored to play an integral role in supporting and helping women succeed. The success of the second annual ‘Women in Funds’ event showcases the importance of the funds community coming together to promote the growing inclusion of women in senior-level roles.”
As the largest global investment management conference, this year’s FundForum International included presentations such as Manjula Lee & Baroness Verma: The bottom line with World Wide Generation and Gibson’s own panel discussion Fintech Innovation in Back Office and RegTech: A Showcase of Transformatory Ideas.
