Female Fund Managers Make Strides
Although still vastly outnumbered, women are gaining ground in the fund world.
It seems as if there aren't as many women who are star fund managers as there were in the 1990s.
Then you had Helen Young Hayes at Janus, Beth Terrana at Fidelity, Beth Dater at Warburg Pincus, and Elizabeth Bramwell first at Gabelli and then at her own firm.
Today, the first three are retired and Bramwell is running Sentinel Capital Growth (BRGRX), although she gets less press than she did in the 1990s. I can name a number of women managers, although I don't know that any are really stars who regularly appear on the covers of investment magazines.
