Women at the head of large companies drive business.
That’s the finding of a Credit Suisse study.
It found that companies with a least one female executive saw more success over the past six years than those led by men only.
The share price of a company with women in management grew 26 percent more than those with just men at the top.
It specifically studied groups with a market capitalization of over $10 billion.
The study also showed that mixed groups registered on average 14 percent sales growth compared with 10 percent at all male businesses.
That’s since the 2008 financial crisis.
Before then the study found that company performance was largely unaffected by the ratio of men to women in the upper rungs of business.
