Alexis Cheang, Principal Consultant within Responsible Investment at Mercer, has been shortlisted for the prestigious Women in Finance Awards, partnered by National Australia Bank.

A passionate and inspiring professional focused on sustainable and responsible investment, Ms Cheang is in the running to take out the Thought Leader of the Year award.

In its inaugural year, the Women in Finance Awards, which covers 28 categories, recognises the outstanding work of women within financial services.

“This awards event is an Australian-first program that truly pulls together all areas of financial services under one umbrella to celebrate success and excellence,” said Momentum Media’s head of events, Jim Hall.

“We are set for a superb awards presentation. The judges have a tough job on their hands this year, and there will no doubt be much excitement to hear their verdicts.

“The winners will not only represent inspirational high achievers from the financial sector, but also recognise the rising stars of tomorrow,” he added.

Ms Cheang said she was thrilled and humbled to be nominated as a finalist for such a prestigious award.

“Being recognised for our thought leadership in responsible investment and climate change reinforces the strength of the Mercer brand in connecting with the community and engaging with our clients and customers,” said Ms Cheang.

Ben Walsh, Managing Director & CEO of Mercer Australia nominated Ms Cheang and reinforced the admiration he has for her.

“We are immensely proud of Alexis and her achievements. She is a natural leader and innovator, and those attributes, along with her dedication and passion, put her in good stead to win this award.”    

The winners will be announced at a black-tie awards dinner on Thursday, 21 September at The Star, Sydney.
