WE CHICAGO | WOMEN'S REPRESENTATION IN THE FUND INDUSTRY & ON BOARDS

 


“More women in the United States are making their own investment decisions than ever before, yet the ranks of professional female fund managers remain exceedingly small. We think shifting demographics may prompt the most change in the fund industry.”- Laura Lutton, director of manager research, Morningstar.
