“It is no secret that female representation in the investment management industry is a fraction of what it can and should be,” says Lisa Langley, President & CEO of Emerge Capital Management. “We are launching EMPWR to support and advocate for female managers and to inspire new women portfolio managers to join the industry.”
Emerge would apply its stringent environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria to the recommendations provided to it by the above women-led investment firms.
