Blythe Masters: 2007 Rising Stars of Fixed Income

In 2007 Blythe Masters appeared in the Institutional Investor News inaugural '20 Rising Stars of Fixed Income' issue at position #11.  The list was meant to spotlight "20 up-and-coming, dedicated professionals, nominated by their peers as the best in class across the broad swath that makes up today's fixed income market."

"Our impressive nominees were selected based on the following attributes:  they are 45 years old or younger, with solid credentials and a demonstrated experience and consistency in the industry that indicates they will be the people to watch as leaders and trend setters going forward."

As a woman from a top bank, educated abroad, Blythe Masters contributed to the percentages of the final three relevant stats for the group:

- Average age of 36
- Three PhDs among finalists
- 20% of the nominees are women
- 35% from top I-banks
- 25% were educated abroad

  1. I find it fantastic to see a woman who has worked her way to the top of the financial world through merit - something you see less and less of these days! Go Blythe Masters! I was amused to read some press about her which inferred she used salty language - all the male executives speak this way, why can't the women talk tough from time to time! Huge double standard that needs to end.
