WP launches inaugural Women in Wealth Management Awards

Wealth Professional is proud to announce that nominations are open for the inaugural Women in Wealth Management Awards, an industry-first created to recognize the leading female advisors, executives and the organizations they run.

The intimate cocktail dinner will take place on November 21 at the Beanfield Centre, Toronto. The nomination window will remain open until Sunday, September 9.

Immediately following the Women in Wealth Management Masterclass, the event will celebrate women who are not only best-in-class professionals, but also inspiring trailblazers for future women leaders to come.

The launch of the event follows the introduction of the MacKenzie Investment Award for Female Trailblazer of the Year at this year’s fourth annual Wealth Professional Awards, which was won by Diane Nash, wealth advisor, NASH Family Wealth Management, National Bank Financial.

The night of celebration, held at the Liberty Grand, also heralded the ground-breaking career of Rebecca Horwood, who received the Invesco Canada Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Wealth Management Industry.

The Women in Wealth Management Awards night promises to showcase more outstanding female talent across these seven awards categories:

  • Young Gun of the Year
  • Marketing and Communications Team of the Year
  • Excellence in Philanthropy and CSR
  • ETF Champion of the Year
  • Female Executive of the Year
  • Women-Led Advisor of the Year
  • Woman Innovator of the Year

This new, trend-setting awards night is brought to you by the organizers of WP Leadership & Tech Summit and the Wealth Professional Awards, the industry-leading awards event that welcomed more than 200 finalists and 500 guests in May.
