Fondsfrauen Award

For the fourth time, we are honoring women, men and companies who are particularly committed to gender diversity in the fund and finance industry. We are looking for the "Company of the Year," the "Role Model of the Year," the "Women of the Year" and the "Female Fund Manager of the Year". The application phase starts now and runs until September 02, 2022. We look forward to receiving your numerous nominations.


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.

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

Role models who have campaigned for the promotion of women in the past year can be nominated.

Whether it's public appearances, articles, support at events, the introduction of special programs 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.

We are looking for the female fund manager of the year. She should demonstrate competitive and excellent performance, whether in a mutual fund, ETF, managed mandates or other fund structures.
