Gold LGBTGreat Financial Services Standard logoWe are honoured to have achieved the Gold LGBTGreat Financial Services Standard for our completion of the Inclusion Index Benchmark Tracker.

This is an important milestone for us in ensuring that Quilter is an LGBTQ+ friendly company.

What are the LGBT Great Financial Services Standards?

LGBT Great’s vision is to make every financial services company LGBTQ+ friendly.

The FS Standards are awarded to financial services organisations who have completed the Inclusion Index Benchmarking Tracker (iiBT), which assesses companies across 10 DE&I indicators:

  1. Leadership and accountability
  2. Policy and planning
  3. People and talent
  4. Recruitment and attraction
  5. Training and development
  6. Procurement and suppliers
  7. Communication and partnerships
  8. Employees and engagement
  9. Culture and belonging
  10. Social sustainability

Members who participate in the iiBT Framework describe, evidence and demonstrate the impact of their LGBTQ+ DE&I strategies

The Gold standard demonstrates we have a proven high level of competency across all 10 iiBT indicators, with a score of over 80%.

This is really brilliant news. It’s the first time we have completed the Inclusion Index Benchmarking Tracker, and to have achieved Gold is a great achievement. Our ‘Together with Pride’ network has been pivotal in raising the visibility and inclusion of our LGBT+ colleagues, and encouraging allyship throughout the company. We are committed to continuing to make Quilter an ever more welcoming and inclusive place to work, and will wear our Gold badge with pride.
