Javelin Portfolio Manager Wins Women In Finance Award

Jun 17 2011 | 3:49am ET

London-based hedge fund manager Javelin Capital counts the UK’s Young Professional of the Year among its portfolio managers.

Stephanie Niven, portfolio manager of Javelin’s Global Equities Strategy Fund, won the award during the 2011 Women in Banking and Finance Awards last Friday.

Niven was part of a three-person team from Goldman Sachs that established Javelin Capital in 2009. At Goldman, she was as a member of the global active equity team in the asset management division, covering both basic materials and industrials. Niven also ran a basket in the multi-approach emerging markets equity long-short strategy, which invested in global materials and industrials names.

Incoming WIBF president, Sylvana Caloni, said of Niven, who has a degree in modern history from Oxford in addition to being a CFA: “Stephanie is a tremendous role model to young women, and men alike, to set a goal, make a plan and do what it takes to realize it, undeterred by not having the typical background of an economics or finance graduate.”

Other winners this year included Carole Berndt, head of global treasury solutions for EMEA at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, who won the WIBF Award for Achievement; and Vanessa Vallely, head of business management-finance at Aviva Investors, who was named WIBF Champion for Women.

The awards are given to “individuals who embody the values of innovation, accountability, responsibility and long-term commitment to clients and community that will drive the future success of Britain’s financial services.”
