Alpha Female 2021: Just 11.8% of portfolio managers are women… and that’s an improvement

It is based on Citywire’s database of 16,353 portfolio managers who run active mutual funds, or their equivalents, around the world. It found that globally 1,932, or 11.8%, of these managers are women, up from 11% in 2020. For the US alone, the percentage of female fund managers is 10%. This is an improvement on 9% in the 2020 report, but last year’s number represented a step back from 2019, when the figure had been 10%.
