A survey by Datamonitor, which looked at the profile of affluent woman in the UK economy, found that they were choosing these well-paid professions. In total women raked in around £153bn in income, compared with the £172bn generated by their male colleagues.

In June, Accountancy Age’s Top 50 survey found that Christine Freshwater from Vellacott DFK was the only female managing partner in the UK’s Top 20 accounting firms.

Last month she stepped down from her position, leaving the slate completely blank.
