Women in Finance

Building a fair and balanced industry

Women in finance charter logoWe are a proud signatory of HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter. The Charter reflects the government’s aspiration to see gender balance in senior management across the financial services industry. We are committed to working together with the government and the wider financial services sector to help build a more balanced and fair industry.

As part of our commitment to the Charter, we have developed a strategy aimed at promoting gender diversity within our management population and at all levels across our organisation. Take a look at the Women in Finance Charter.

In 2017 female representation in senior management was 29.1%. We have made commitments, set targets and driven a wide range of initiatives since signing the Women in Finance Charter in September 2016.

As of 31.07.22 we have 36% female representation in senior management and 33% female representation on our Executive Committee.

Since the reduction in female candidates at a senior level in 2021, we have seen an increase in 2022.
