The Business Case for Diversity & Inclusion

Gender diversity

25%
Companies in the top quartile
for gender diversity on exec teams were
more likely to have above-average profitability than companies in the fourth quartile [1].

Ethnic diversity

36%
Companies in the top quartile
for ethnic diversity were
more likely to have above-average profitability than companies in the fourth quartile [1].
Companies that are dedicated to building and promoting diversity in the workplace are seen as more human and socially responsible organisations, both in the eyes of consumers and employees.
Positive company brand and reputation
By presenting diversity at a senior level, equality of opportunity and freedom from bias, financial services businesses will appeal to a more diverse pool of potential employees, bringing unique perspectives and experiences to the business.
Recruiting and retaining the best talent
A diverse workforce will be more reflective of the diverse UK consumer base, enabling the creation of products and services which will remain relevant into the future. Diversity fosters innovation, creativity and problem-solving.

Building a more sustainable business
How D&I drives profitability:
83%
of Gen Z candidates said that a company’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is important when choosing an employer[2]
Gender is probably the most spoken about facet of diversity and inclusion, and yet we are so far from equality.

So, what does this mean for the many other facets of D&I – age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability?

The BLM movement has really brought to light the discrimination faced by the black community, another marginalised group which is under-represented in the industry.
Going Beyond Gender
1.5%
Black people make up just
of top management roles[3]
3%
Lesbian, gay, and bisexual individuals make up
of roles in the financial services sector[4]
Black, asian, and minority ethnic representation drops as you climb the corporate ladder:
1/4
school students
1/10
workers
1/16
execs

are black, asian, or minority ethnic[3]

We speak to inspirational business leaders, rising stars and the people who are really going above and beyond to change the mix in our industry. Taking steps to close the gender pay gap, pushing for equal representation across the full spectrum of ethnicities and sexual orientations, and generally challenging the status quo.
