Did you know that only 2% of the $12.6 trillion invested in U.S. based open-ended mutual funds is managed exclusively by women? That is a shockingly small percentage. As women, we have the opportunity to grow those numbers by showing our support for the women who have been courageous enough to enter this very male-dominated world.
Patricia Lizarraga is one of those women. She is a Managing Partner at Hypatia Capital, an asset management firm that has been focused on investing in women in leadership since 2007. The company has offered both private equity and hedge fund opportunities to accredited investors. Last year, as a result of Patricia’s leadership, the firm stepped out into new terrain when they launched the Hypatia Women CEO ETF (WCEO). This fund, which is available to any investor through the stock market, invests in all publicly traded companies that have a female CEO.
Join us as we hear directly from Patricia about why she felt it was so important to develop this product, what it takes to bring a new public fund to market, and how investments in a fund like this can have impact on multiple levels simultaneously.
