Corley will receive the 100 Women in Hedge Funds 2015 European Industry Leadership Award in October.

Net proceeds from the London Gala in October, when Corley receives the award, will be given to The Art Room, a charity aimed at 5-16-year olds who are experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. ©2015 funds europe
