Women in Alternatives

In its 2021 study, Preqin, a leading provider of financial data and information on the alternative assets market, found that only 20 percent of the professionals in the alternatives industry were female at the close of 2020. Furthermore, it found that women held only 12 percent of the industry’s senior positions.

Through its partnership with the American Investment Council (AIC) and The Robert Toigo Foundation, the National Association of Investment Companies’ Women in Alternatives Initiative (WIA): “In, Up and Beyond,” strategy is designed to tackle the challenge of improving the representation of diverse female professionals within the alternative investment industry.
