One of the first steps in making meaningful change is understanding where you are, so you can identify the change needed and how to make it.
You can discover the changes we are making in our first Diversity and inclusion (D&I) report.

As part of our longstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion, you can explore our progress to date and see what actions we are taking in our first diversity and inclusion (D&I) report.

Our goals

1. Attract, develop and retain talent

We believe diverse minds bring different perspectives and enable more challenge and debate, leading to better decisions.

2. Create a culture where everyone feels safe, included, and valued

We are working hard to improve gender representation in our senior management population and ethnicity representation firmwide. To do this, we must drive more understanding of and accountability for D&I across all colleagues.

3. Drive accountability across the firm

We continue to focus on continuous improvements internally and engaging with industry bodies to shape and influence how asset management as a whole drives change in D&I.
