Watch on demand: Women in Investment Career Booster webinar on how to progress in sales and distribution

Investment Week was pleased to host the second in our new series of Career Booster webinars linked to our Women in Investment Awards, in association with HSBC Asset Management, focusing on helping women progress and thrive in sales and distribution roles within the sector.

This webinar would be of interest to women who are in the early stages or want to build on their career in sales and distribution in the investment sector, or individuals looking to break into this area. 

This discussion would also be of interest to male and female managers of sales and distribution teams, who would like to do more to support women in their teams and encourage diverse talent. 

Our panel of senior women shared the secrets of their success building a career in sales and distribution. They highlighted the opportunities for women in this area and offered practical advice on how to tackle some of the roadblocks women may face. 

They also suggested key questions for the audience to ask firms in the sector and discussed how senior sales and distribution managers can help attract and develop female talent within an inclusive environment. 

Our first webinar in the Career Booster webinar series was held on Thursday 15 July and focused on progressing in a career as a fund manager. You can watch the webinar on demand here

Selina Tyler, Head of UK Wholesale, Lombard Odier Investment Managers
