The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association has today (Tuesday) commented on signing up to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, as part of our continued commitment to improving gender diversity within the sector.
Julian Mund, Chief Executive, PLSA, said:
“Pension schemes have long made it clear that they expect diverse boards at the companies they invest in as this is key to firms’ long term success. What is right for companies, must also be right for pension funds. At the PLSA, we have a responsibility to ensure that women are represented fully across the wider pensions sector and becoming a Charter signatory shows our continued commitment to this issue.
“We are proud to say that at the time of signing, we have already achieved our goal of having 50% women in our senior management team. However, signing up to the Charter is only one aspect of the work we do and will continue to do to ensure fair representation of women [within the PLSA] and the pensions industry. We look forward to working with HM Treasury and our members to make sure that this Charter is a success.”
