Caroline Shaw, Courtiers Head of Fund & Asset Management has been nominated for Investment Week’s “Women in Investment Awards 2017”.
Caroline’s nomination for Fund Manager of the Year represents in the words of Investment Week (IW), wider recognition of “the achievements of women in a sector where they are currently under-represented.”
Being a key member in our Investment Team since 2000, Caroline is responsible for heading up a team of five to design, implement and manage investment strategies alongside managing the six Courtiers Funds.
We were pleased earlier this year when Caroline collected two awards for Courtiers at the Lipper Fund Awards in London, at an event notably dominated by male nominees, representatives and achievers . It’s exciting to see IW putting their authoritative voice to good use and hopefully in the coming years we’ll see more women taking to stages across the UK, being recognised for achievements in the industry.
The Women in Investment Awards 2017 received over 800 nominations across 18 categories. IW highlights many good reasons for promoting women in the financial services industry, not least encouraging a “broader pool of talent for investors” and a “more sustainable investment industry for all”.
This is all excellent news and we wish Caroline the best of luck. Joining Investment Week in congratulating her for this nomination, we also congratulate Caroline for her achievements to date, her commitment to the industry and of course, her commitment to Courtiers.
Well done Caroline and good luck!
