 Treasury to Host Women in Finance Investment Symposium Tuesday, July 12, 2011

WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, July 12, 2011, the U.S. Department of the Treasury will convene a Women in Finance Symposium focusing on institutional investment. Following up on the first Women in Finance Symposium in March 2010 and Treasury’s Access to Capital Conference earlier this year, the symposium will bring together senior Administration officials, private sector leaders, and institutional investors for a series of panel discussions to recognize a new group of women who have risen to leadership roles in the institutional investment space and to explore the crucial role of the capital they invest in economic growth and sustainability, entrepreneurship, and job creation in America. Tuesday’s symposium will initiate a dialogue on how institutional investors are deploying capital and managing risk and how investment practices have changed post-financial crisis.
