Gender balance

Women in Finance Charter

We’re passionate about fairness, equality and inclusion for men and women. We’re committed to achieving a 50:50 gender balance (within a 10% tolerance) in each key employee category by 2020.

When we signed the Women in Finance Charter in 2016, 18% of our senior management were female. Our gender balance has continued to improve over the course of 2018, with female representation within senior management grades increasing from 28.9% to 30.2%, and male representation in our entry level roles increasing from 27.2% to 33.2% over the year. Our board of directors had 31% female representation at 31 December 2018.
