Female hedge fund managers must perform better than men to raise capital
Forbes - 03/08/2016
For years, women have claimed they need to work harder and perform better just to achieve the same rewards as their male counterparts. New research evidence confirms this is true, at least for female hedge fund managers. According to researchers Rajesh Aggarwal and Nicole Boyson, female hedge fund managers are not able to raise capital as easily as men. In fact, female-run funds must outperform male-run funds in order to attract investors. Having spent some time in the hedge fund world and having also researched women’s obstacles in male-dominated careers, I can explain why – it’s the sex partition problem.
