"Female Fund Managers Make Strides," according to Morningstar

Today women make up 12% of the managers of the 200 largest mutual funds, according to “Female Fund Managers Make Strides,” a Dec. 1 Morningstar article.

Twelve percent may not sound like much, but that’s up 50% from 1998. 

On the other hand, as the article notes, women make up 19% of active CFA charterholders. “it seems reasonable to think that the percent at the biggest funds should lag the CFA charterholders figure by a few years.” Do you agree?
