Fortune Magazine has an article exploring why we don’t see women managing hedge funds. The proportion on women to men is much lower in the hedge fund business than it is in other areas of market finance. People cite many different explanations, including fewer women with MBAs, fewer women willing to make the jump to start their own firms, fewer men (and women) willing to hire women, fewer women surviving in an investment bank, and fewer women wanting to be involved with hedge funds.
