We are delighted that 14 women from Blackfinch have been nominated for Investment Week’s Women in Investment Awards 2019. With many dedicated, professional women at Blackfinch, we are very proud of their hard work and success.
The awards recognise and showcase the talents of women in a growing and competitive sector. They honour the inspiring achievements of women across all parts of the investment industry and help shift the dial on the discussion around gender diversity within the sector.
2019 is the third year Investment Week has held the awards, which are run in partnership with HSBC. This year over 1,300 women were nominated from many different banks and firms.
There are now 22 different categories in which women can be nominated. These include: ‘Role Model of the Year’, ‘Fund Manager of the Year’, ‘Young Investment Woman of the Year’, ‘Team Leader of the Year’ and ‘Most Inspiring Returner’.
Rebecca Copsey, Project Manager at Blackfinch, has been nominated for: ‘Change Excellence’, ‘Mentor of the Year’, ‘Role Model of the Year’ and ‘Young Investment Woman of the Year’.
“I am extremely proud to be nominated for these awards alongside many other amazing women from Blackfinch and across the industry. I have always believed in the quote ‘who you are tomorrow begins with what you do today’. It is great to see so many women striving for excellence and being recognised for it.”
Danielle Trow, Business Development Manager at Blackfinch, has been nominated for: ‘Rising Star’ and ‘Most Inspiring Returner’.
‘’I am absolutely delighted to have been nominated for two awards beside the very talented women from Blackfinch Group. The large number of nominees for a wide range of awards is testament to Blackfinch’s inclusivity and the female talent it has recruited and continues to develop.’’
With the awards taking place in November, we are keeping our fingers crossed for our nominees.
