DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

We are resolute believers in the adage that our differences make us stronger.

One of our core aims is to develop an inclusive culture: one that attracts and retains diverse talent, where all colleagues’ contributions are valued and diverse perspectives are encouraged. This is good for employees and hugely beneficial to the business: it contributes to better decision-making, innovation and greater understanding of clients. We believe this will help us build a stronger and more sustainable organisation for the future. 

As an investment-led firm, wholly committed to active fund management, having a diversity of views, combined with a willingness to challenge both each other and received wisdom, is fundamental to what we stand for.

Much the same is true for other teams across the business. From distribution to operations, it is only through a preparedness to think differently that we can innovate and improve on the status quo. We believe that having a multiplicity of backgrounds and viewpoints is central to our ability to think differently.

The Investment Association’s Diversity Project

The Diversity Project is a cross-sector initiative to increase diversity.

The Project’s vision is for a truly diverse and inclusive UK investment and savings industry with the right talent to deliver the best possible results for our clients and to reflect the society we serve. We believe that recognisable and measurable progress can be achieved over the Project’s five year timeframe.

We aim to achieve diversity across all dimensions, including gender, ethnicity, socio-economic background, LGBTI+, age and disability. Metrics to assess progress will be published following an analysis of the industry’s existing position across these dimensions.www.diversityproject.com
