There should be more women traders than men. It’s capitalism.

One of the core tenets of capitalism is competition – where the best rise the top, be it goods, services. or talent itself. Just as central to the system are the trading floors, filled with row upon row of desks where traders focus on screens reading out stock performance, aided by the latest, greatest technology that facilitates transaction in nanoseconds. And, it’s safe to say, most of those desks are manned by men. As it stands, females make up a mere five percent of traders in the world. In the US, less than 10 percent of Fund Managers are women. Does the dominance of men in the industry indicate that men are simply better traders than women?
