Fourth Annual Women in Finance Awards Winners

Traders Magazine Online News, November 15, 2018

John D'Antona Jr.

Wall Street loves a good celebration.

It was eight years ago that Traders Magazine’s publisher Kenneth Heath decided it was time to celebrate the contributions made by women on Wall Street. A first for its time, Traders Magazine solicited, vetted and selected several spectacular women for special recognition at the New York Academy of Sciences on November 10. There were 16 awards presented at the inaugural event including a Diversity of the Year award – given to the firm which made the greatest strides to advance women and minorities.

Fast forward to now and Traders Magazine, part of the Markets Media Group, builds on Heath’s legacy and initiative by celebrating women at Markets Media Group’s Markets Choice Awards Women in Finance gala. The spirit of the event remains the same – recognizing women of excellence in a field that is now giving rise and credence to women and their contributions to the field of finance.

Winners were announced ths evening at the JW Marriott Essex House New York. Congratulatios to all this year’s winners.
