Citywealth Powerwomen Awards 2018
The Citywealth Powerwomen Awards 2018 took place on 22nd Feb at the five-star Rosewood Hotel, in the City of London. Now in its fifth year, the event celebrates individuals and companies that support female leadership and diversity within the wealth management sector.
The gala kicked off with a champagne reception and then the guests sat down to a fine three course dinner. The trophies were handed out by Will Greenwood MBE, former rugby union player, who was hosting the event.
A total of twenty Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards were announced with two further awards, The Editor’s Choice Award and The Career Achievement Award handed out first. Winners had been selected from a shortlist of over one hundred candidates drawn up by ten judges, all prominent figures from the wealth industry. Additional online voting was verified by an independent third party.
Karen Jones, Editor and CEO of Citywealth, said of the winners: “Citywealth is delighted to have discovered a thoughtful and self- assured group in our Powerwomen finalists who will prove to be role models for women joining or returning into the wealth management industry. It is a pleasure to support their work and business development with these accolades. Congratulations to all the women who have been recognised in the Powerwomen Awards 2018.”
The evening raised over £5,000 for the charity Shooting Star Chase, a leading children’s hospice charity that supports terminally ill children.
