The WIFAA ceremony recognizes the most talented and accomplished women in multiple categories across the business of finance. WIFAA nominees may come from buy-side and sell- side trading desks, institutional investors, wealth managers, securities exchanges, technology providers, corporate finance, venture capital firms, fintech start-ups — really any area within the financial sector.

Nominees are first put forth by readers of GlobalTrading Journal ( and, and shortlists and winners are determined by the editorial staffs of the two platforms, in conjunction with the WIFAA Advisory Board. As with our nine- year-old Markets Choice Awards franchise, our methodology in selecting nominees and then winners for WIFAA is simple yet thorough, and keeps the focus on the important opinions: those of market participants, not ours.
