We believe that the savings and investment industry will be stronger and deliver greater benefits to customers and society if we create a more inclusive culture.
An inclusive culture can help attract the best talent into the industry. Diversity of people and thought within teams can improve decision-making by reflecting different perspectives, avoiding group think and our natural human biases. Quite simply diversity is good for business, colleagues and customers.
We are committed to building a more inclusive culture and diverse colleague community at Quilter
Quilter is a proud signatory of the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter which seeks to improve gender balance at all levels across the financial services sector.
In 2017 we set our target for gender balance in senior management; a minimum of 35%, but aiming for 40% of senior management being female by the end of 2020.
We are founding members of the Diversity Project which is a collaborative initiative that brings investment and savings firms together to accelerate progress towards an inclusive culture in the investment profession.
We are also supporters of the 30% Club – both as an employer and an investor - which aims to develop a diverse pool of talent for all businesses through the efforts of their Chair and CEO members, who are committed to better gender balance at all levels of their organisations.
