Tiina Lee and Anita Nemes both appear in the list, published today. Places in the top 100 are awarded based on the candidate's influence within their sector, leadership in their area, performance over the past year, and their capacity to shape their business and industry over the year to come. Financial News selects the 100 from a shortlist of 250 women.
This year’s list of FN100 Influential Women has turned the spotlight on senior female executives who are working on restructuring corporates, banks and financial regulation in the wake of the credit crisis. There is a strong focus on women working within regulation, but also women whose advisory, capital markets and operational roles have focused on restructuring.
Tiina Lee, who was also in the Top 100 last year, was awarded the place in recognition for her work on advising the UK treasury on bank recapitalisation last year. Lee took on a new role at Deutsche Bank in April this year, working on the Bank’s UK strategy with UK CEO Colin Grassie. Lee told Financial News that the best advice she was given is “to always ask for it; if you don’t someone else definitely will.”
Anita Nemes, who will be based in London, joins the Bank in October as Global Head of Capital Introduction and will report to the regional heads of Prime Finance Sales. Nemes will spearhead the ongoing effort to provide Deutsche Bank’s hedge fund clients with access to institutional sources of capital, which has been one of the most significant growth areas for hedge funds since 2008.
