GlobalTrading, a Markets Media Group publication, presents

the 6th annual Women in Finance Asia Awards.

Thursday, May 16 2024, Raffles Hotel Singapore.



GlobalTrading, a Markets Media Group publication, is pleased to present the 2024 annual Women in Finance Asia Awards.

The sixth-annual event will be held as an evening dinner gala event, on Thursday, May 16, 2024, at the Raffles Hotel Singapore.

Last year’s WIFAA program recognized and celebrated more than 25 of the most dynamic, talented and accomplished professional women who have made their names in the financial centers of Hong Kong, Singapore, Tokyo and Sydney. 

Winners included Annisa Lee of PIMCO for Excellence in Asset Management; Puja Bharwani of Fidelity for Excellence in Buy-Side Trading; Chen Ni of Citi for Crystal Ladder; Priya Kundamal of DTCC for Excellence in Leadership; and Susan Chan of BlackRock for Lifetime Achievement.

The WIFAA program has come a long way since its inaugural luncheon at Four Seasons Hong Kong in 2019, attended by 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, BNP Paribas, Credit Suisse, HSBC Asset Management, Morgan Stanley, and other large, influential global financial firms.

The 2023 WIFAA brought back the energy, spirit and fun that only in-person events can provide, and we look forward to more of the same in 2024.

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 at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore on May 16, 2024 as we recognize and celebrate the best of the best women in Asian financial markets!


Nominations are accepted until Sunday the 31st of March 2024.
