Our much-anticipated WIF event has more than quadrupled in three years, from about 100 attendees in 2015 to more than 400 last year. The market reception reflects the fact that women are an indomitable force in the financial sector, and their influence and stature will only expand in the future.

In response to the growth of the event, this year we are evolving the format from a midday luncheon to an evening gala. In the spirit of Markets Mediaís annual Markets Choice Awards, the WIF program recognizes the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance. WIF nominees may come from buy-side and sell- side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, start-ups ó really any area within the financial sector.

Nominees are first put forth by readers of and, and shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIF Advisory Board. As with our six-year-old Markets Choice Awards franchise, 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.

There were more than 40 award winners last year. Categories included Excellence in Leadership, Fixed Income Trader of the Year, Rising Star, Trailblazer, Disruptor of the Year, CEO of the Year, and Lifetime Achievement.

Please join us in November as we recognize and celebrate the best of the best.
