The Powerwomen Awards 2020 - recognising individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth

Citywealth is delighted to open its seventh year awards programme to champion women in the wealth sector and highlight the female leaders of today and tomorrow. The awards spotlight individuals and companies who support caregiving responsibilities, female leadership, and celebrate diversity. Globally, women hold approximately one in five senior management roles, and fewer than one in ten businesses have a female CEO; of Financial Times top 500 companies, women represent 1.8% of CEOs and hold 10% of board seats. By working together and inclusively we can do so much more. In 2012, a Dow Jones study found that the overall median proportion of female executives is 7.1% at successful companies and 3.1% at unsuccessful companies, demonstrating the value that having more females can potentially bring to a management team.

Therefore, the Powerwomen Awards 2020 will both recognise individuals and companies who maximise the potential of women in wealth, and will also create a platform for best practice to collectively exercise positive social influence on the sector.

 

The Powerwomen Awards US 2019/20 - recognising US counterparts in private wealth management - inaugural year

 

Citywealth is delighted to feature recommended individuals in the US for the first time in 2019/20. Selected by different geographies we recognise Powerwomen who lead in their field across the USA, helping them to connect with Europe and vice versa as the tech boom brings the two countries closer together. All women featured will be awarded an honour trophy at the March 4th Powerwomen gala event and a selection will be given top awards prizes following a vote open to private clients and peers conducted on our online voting site the Leaders List. The voting is now closed as of 15th July.
