Hedge Fund Firms Hired Women for Almost Half of New ESG Jobs

Women accounted for almost half of ESG-related hedge fund jobs in the last two years, far exceeding the industry’s overall female hiring rate.

Globally, 49.6% of ESG hires were women in 2020 and 2021, according to a study issued Wednesday by HFObserver, an online data platform that tracks employment in the alternative asset management industry. By contrast, women made up only about 29% of overall hires in the sector.
