GlobalTrading, a Markets Media Group publication, presents

the 5th annual Women in Finance Asia Awards.

Thursday, May 18, Raffles Hotel Singapore.



The inaugural WIFAA program, held at Four Seasons Hong Kong in 2019, was a great success with 150 top executives and 14 winners representing many of the top traders, technologists and senior capital markets executives in Asia.

The event pivoted to a virtual format in 2020-2022 and expanded to more than 20 awards with winners from BlackRock, Credit Suisse, HSBC Asset Management and other large, influential global financial firms. The three virtual programs were successful and well-received by winners, supporters, and sponsoring firms alike.

Last year’s WIFAA winners included some of the most dynamic and accomplished professional women who have made their names in the financial centers of Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney.

Winners included Cindy Lai of JP Morgan Asset Management for Excellence in Asset Management; Mariko Ishikawa of Credit Suisse for Trailblazer; Laura Atherley of Citi for Excellence in Leadership; and Rachel Lord of BlackRock for Lifetime Achievement.

We all look forward to returning to the energy, spirit and fun that only in-person events can provide.

As with other Markets Media awards programs, the WIFAA program recognizes the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance: buy-side and sell-side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, and fintech start-ups.

Nominees are put forth by readers of GlobalTrading and MarketsMedia, and shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIFAA Advisory Board.

Our methodology in selecting nominees and then winners for Women in Finance is simple yet thorough, and keeps the focus on the important opinions: those of market participants, not ours.

Please join us in at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore on May 18 as we recognize and celebrate the best of the best women in Asian financial markets!
