Even compared to the rest of the financial world, women are underrepresented as hedge fund managers.

Mary Childs of Barrons has been exploring this gender gap, and she's come to the conclusion that the reason women are so under-represented in the hedge fund world isn't because men are better investors. Rather, it's because women have had to work a lot harder than men to get to the same job. In the first of an occasional series focused on the banking and investing world, she speaks with Cardiff Garcia about women in hedge funds.
