The 33 Most Influential Women In the U.S. Fund Biz

News summary by MFWire's editors

Of the 100 Most Influential Women in U.S. Finance, 33 are fundsters.

Carolyn Jean Weinberg
Managing Director, Global Head of Product, ETF and Index Investments
That's one takeaway from an inaugural influential women in finance list from Barron's, released in this week's issue. To create the list, the publication's team drew on nominations and their own editorial staff, then culled down from an initial list of hundreds of nominees in money management, investment research, banking, financial regulation, trading, brokerage, family offices, advisory services, and financial policy and advocacy, as well as CFOs for companies outside those businesses. (Barron's has, as of this morning, posted profiles on a dozen or so of the 100 women on the list.)

The biggest mutual fund company winners of the new list were two asset management titans, BlackRock and Fidelity, each of which landed three spots on the list. BlackRock's winners included: Anne Ackerley, head of the retirement group; Barbara Novick, the outgoing vice chairman and co-founder; and Carolyn Weinberg, global head of iShares product. Fidelity's winners included: Pam Holding, co-head of the equities division; Abby Johnson, chair and CEO; and Kathleen Murphy, president of personal investing.

Four firms landed two spots each. From Ariel Investments, winners included Rupal Bhansali, chief investment officer and PM for international and global equity strategies, and Mellody Hobson, co-CEO.

Franklin Templeton's two winners included Sonal Desai, CIO of the fixed income group, and Jenny Johnson, president and CEO of the overall firm.

J.P. Morgan's two fundster winners included Mary Callahan Erdoes, CEO of asset and wealth management, and Clare Hart, managing director and PM in JPMAM's U.S. equity group.

Vanguard's two winners included: Martha King, managing director of the institutional investor group, and Karen Risi, managing director of the retail investor group.

The rest of the winning fundsters included:

  • Donna Anderson, head of corporate governance for U.S. equities at T. Rowe Price;

  • Christine Benz, director of personal finance and senior columnist at Morningstar;

  • Dalia Blass, head of the SEC's investment management division;
