Top 50 Women in Hedge Funds Revealed
It’s been a mystery, until now. The Hedge Fund Journal in partnership with Price- WaterhouseCoopers has revealed the Top 50 Women in Hedge Funds. I wrote an article several months ago entitled “Should You Hire a Woman To Manage Your Money ” when I first learned of the news that from the years 2000 through 2009, while all hedge funds were up 6% on average, those run by women were up 9%. In 2008, all mutual funds dropped 19% while those run by women were down less than 10%. I’ll say it again, those numbers are compelling!
The most amazing statistic according to the Hedge Fund Journal is that women manage an estimated 3% slice of the $1.5 trillion invested in hedge funds, according to Hedge Fund Journal.
You can read a short overview about the release on the FINS website, an extension of the Wall Street Journal for those in the financial services industry.

My favorite on the list? Karen Finerman. You might recognize her name because she appears on CNBC’s Fast Money . Finerman is Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Metropolitan Capital Advisors in New York. She’s smart, successful, articulate, and can hold her own on the fast-paced technical investment show. This woman does it all. She sits on the board of The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, manages a successful hedge fund, appears as a tv personality almost daily, and did I mention that she has two sets of twins??? Wow. She’s a testament to success for aspiring women in finance!
