Fondsfrauen Award

For the sixth time, we are honoring women, men, and companies that are particularly committed to gender diversity in the fund and finance industry. Companies that have taken a pioneering role in diversity receive the "Company of the Year" award. As "Role Model of the Year," we recognize women and men who are role models for gender diversity in our industry. "Woman of the Year" is awarded to the woman who sets an example for others with her outstanding professional performance. "Fund Manager of the Year" goes to the woman who can demonstrate excellent performance for her product. The "Rising Talent" award is given to an exceptional talent of tomorrow.

The Fondsfrauen Award 2024 will be presented on October 11, 2024, at Spark in Frankfurt am Main. The nomination period is open until September 6, 2024. Nominate your favorites now!


The Fondsfrauen Award is presented in the following categories:

Company of the Year

We are looking for the company in the asset management and financial sector that has been the most ambitious with the promotion of women in the past year. For example, through in-house programmes, targeted training, promotion of young talents, changed job advertisements, equal pay policies or a new corporate culture.

Woman of the Year

We want to recognize successful women for their outstanding achievements.
Women who demonstrate entrepreneurial success as top performers, e.g. sales increases, mergers or repositioning of companies, implementation of strategically important projects or similar.

Fondsmanagerin of the Year

Female Fund Manager of the Year (F)

We are looking for the Female Fund Manager of the Year. She should have competitive and excellent performance, whether in a mutual fund, ETF, managed mandates or other fund structures. She should have successfully launched an innovative strategy or generated sustainable inflows for it.

Role Model of the Year (M/F/D)

The nominees are role models who have made a strong contribution to the advancement of women in the past year.

Whether it is public appearances, articles, support at events, the introduction of special programmes in their own company or mentoring: we are looking for a person who takes their role as a role model seriously and actively contributes to promoting women and bringing them into leadership positions. Nominations are also open to people who can be an inspiration to the next generation and inspire more women to join our industry.

Rising Talent

Rising Talent (F)

Young female talents are the managers of tomorrow. We therefore want to recognise women who have chosen a career in asset management and have already achieved success within their first five years of work. Whether they have shown assertiveness, shone through innovations or ways of improving their work area or shown commitment beyond their company. Nominations are especially open to talents from the areas of sales and portfolio management.

The nomination period for the year 2024 begins in June. We look forward to your nominations!
