Investments - Women In Finance

In March 2021

Key Fund was proud to become a signatory to the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter. This commits us to setting internal targets for gender diversity in our senior management and publishing progress annually against these targets in our Social Impact Report and on our website. As of 2016 we have 50% female representation in senior management. We are committed to maintaining this level.

Our actions for this financial year to drive progress towards gender parity fall under four themes:

Recruitment

Building networks to ensure we reach a wide pool of applicants. Using accessible formats, inclusive language and valuing lived experience. Appointing specialist diversity recruiters for Board appointments Carrying out post-recruitment analysis Attending specific diversity and inclusion training for recruiting personnel

Retention and promotion

Monitoring and responding to employee’s inclusion needs. Identifying and developing internal diverse talent for progression into senior management positions.

Embedding EDI into business as usual

Annually report on our gender pay gap and carrying out corrective action as appropriate. Regular Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group meetings to evaluate progress on our EDI Action Plan.

Behaviour and culture

Refreshing and developing further policies to ensure an inclusive work environment.
