On Tuesday, April 21, The Haverford Trust Company hosted the WIN Women Run Funds Panel
and welcomed Tracy Musser, Sandra Ackermann-Schaufler, Kristina Koutrakos, Kelley McKee, and Allison Mortensen to discuss their investment strategies and how they approach their roles and responsibilities.
One panelist thinks women are not necessarily risk averse as some studies say. However, she believes they tend to be risk aware and tend to incorporate multiple facets of risk management into their decision making process.
All panelists have mentors of some sort - formal or informal and this has had a positive impact for many of the women on the panel. Panelists acknowledged that, in just a short period of time, a lot of positive changes in the asset management industry have occurred for women
and cited the existence of organizations like WIN aides to this movement.
The panel was well received by the attendees. Panelists answered many questions from the audience during the discussion. Before and after the session, WIN members, The Haverford Trust Company employees and guests were able to network over wine and hors d’oeuvres.
WIN thanks all the panelists for sharing their insights and thank The Haverford Trust Company for hosting the event.
