The Bloomberg Women’s Buy-Side Network (BWBN) Brazil 2023 Board of Directors discussed the challenges of getting more women into senior executive positions in the asset management industry.

The BWBN Brazil Board met recently with about 30 women, who have about 15 years of experience each, and spoke about what helped them get into executive level posts. The panel discussion was followed by mentoring sessions and networking at Bloomberg’s São Paulo office.

The 2023 BWBN Brazil Board includes:

  • Milena Landgraf, Experienced fund industry executive specializing in portfolio management,
  • Vivian Murakoshi Lee, Managing Partner and Head of Credit at Ibiuna Investimentos, and
  • Ana Luísa Rodela, CFA, Head of Credit at Bradesco Asset Management.

“Networking is essential for women in investment management to hear about better positions,” Landgraf said, adding, “It’s something men do regularly, but women don’t always have the time to do it because of family obligatgions.”

Rodela said that “creating a safe space to network is an initiative that will help them learn from each other. This will help female voices be heard.”

The BWBN Brazil Board spoke with attendees about the challenges of maternity leave, managing teams, and recruitment. They provided tips on how to position themselves correctly to move ahead in their careers and issues such as how to ask for a raise.

“We have a duty to deconstruct the idea that being a woman in the buy-side industry can be a hindrance,” said Lee. Since there are fewer women in investment management in Brazil, they stand out, and need to support each other to move ahead.

The panel discussion was moderated by Cristiane Lucchesi, Bloomberg News Senior reporter for finance and legal.

Bloomberg will continue to support women with events, information and training to help them succeed in the asset management industry. The BWBN Brazil Chapter is dedicated to encouraging, engaging and convening women, said Karin Edelweiss, CFA, who leads Bloomberg’s relationships with large asset management firms in Brazil.
