Momentum Media hosted the sixth annual Women in Finance Awards cocktail luncheon on Thursday, 3 November at The Star in Sydney to celebrate the successes of the women making an impact on the finance industry.

Run with the support of principal partner Mortgage Choice (part of REA Group), the Women in Finance Awards program recognises the outstanding contributions of the women going above and beyond for their clients and propelling the finance industry forward.

The awards were open to CEOs, entrepreneurs, executives, innovators, mentors, thought leaders, as well as the young leaders of tomorrow.

Over 680 members of the finance industry were in attendance to cheer on a total 249 finalists competing for 29 submission-based awards; over 24 individual and five company categories.

All eyes were on who would receive the prestigious Women in Finance Excellence Award (awarded to the highest-scoring winner from the individual award categories).

Law firm King & Wood Mallesons’ senior associate Paula Nassif won the 2022 Excellence Award after picking up the Banking and Finance Lawyer of the Year award earlier in the day.

Women in other areas of finance were also recognised for their successes and hard work this year, including accounting, auditing, mortgage, finance, and commercial broking, financial advice, fintech, and self-managed superannuation fund (SMSF) advice.

Stand-up comedian, author, radio and television presenter Cal Wilson provided the entertainment while attendees let their hair down, networked with the industry, and celebrated the successes of their peers.

The keynote speech was delivered by Bianca Hartge-Hazelman, co-founder, editor and CEO at female finance publication Financy.
