(Wall Street Journal) Financial News: Women on the Front Line
The Wall Street Journal’s colleagues at Financial News have unveiled their sixth annual list of the 100 most influential women in European financial markets. This year’s list is dominated by those negotiating the plethora of new rules governing every single aspect of the industry.
Of the 100 women on the list, a fifth are actively involved in regulatory reform. Four are Members of the European Parliament, three are regulators, six campaign for industry lobby groups, two co-ordinate think tanks and the others represent their firms to policy makers as well as helping their companies digest, respond to and comply with the latest proposals.
The names also include 15 chief executives, three chairmen, two chief operating officers, three chief investment officers and a chief financial officer. Ten are partners, five run firms they founded and more than half are heads of their departments, either regionally or globally.
