Women at the top of their game

Our annual list celebrates 60 women making an impression in alternative assets.

When PEI Media launched the Women of Influence in Private Markets list in 2021, we were flooded with nominations that highlighted the outstanding achievements of women working across alternative assets around the world.

We sought to recognize the myriad ways women demonstrate excellence in private funds, and to shine a light on their accomplishments in an industry that has traditionally been male dominated. The list won plaudits across the finance industry, receiving a highly commended accolade in the Best Editorial Campaign category at the Aviva Investors Sustainability Media Awards 2021.

Our hope, of course, is that the private markets industry progresses to the stage where we no longer need such lists to ensure equal representation. But we are not there yet.

This year, we received 600-plus nominations from the list across six categories, testament to the depth of talent in the industry.

The PERE editorial team had the daunting task of selecting just 10 women in the real estate category from the many high-caliber submissions.

Here, we introduce you to real estate’s Women of Influence, class of 2022.
