Morningstar recently takes a microscope to the talent pool of the fund management industry, women's credentials in the field, and the ratio of women to men in comparable professions.

In past research, Morningstar found that women fund managers make up 10 percent of the U.S. fund management industry. Morningstar's Director of North American Manager Research Laura Lutton and Quantitative Analyst Madison Sargis have identified areas of progress and regression in the fund industry, shedding light on the lack of diversity in the industry and encouraging gender diversity among fund managers.

Passive and Team-Managed Funds Prove More Inclusive: While women are underrepresented in fund manager roles worldwide, Morningstar's comprehensive 2016 Fund Managers by Gender study showed notable gains in some areas. Women are more likely to manage a passive fund than an active fund, and they're more likely to be chosen to run a fund of funds than a fund that buys and sells individual securities.
