EXANTE has been awarded with the ‘Diversity Marketing and Recruitment Initiative’ award by FT Adviser. EXANTE had been shortlisted for the Diversity in Finance Awards in the previous two years, 2020 and 2021, and continued to push the envelope with a focus on diversity. This year, EXANTE has been recognised for its exceptional results in recruiting female employees for leadership roles in the company and in its Women Who Invest campaign for female investors.
Typically, tech and finance are both very male-dominated industries. However, EXANTE recognises that a company with greater diversity and inclusiveness will have more out-of-the-box thinking and higher rates of innovation. We’re actively recruiting women across a range of roles including into senior management; women comprise 50% of our C-suite positions.
As part of our commitment to a more diverse and inclusive workforce, we have partnered with Women On Boards UK. This partnership includes annual membership to our employees and two masterclasses to encourage our female employees as they learn and develop their skills.
At EXANTE, we understand that women may have different priorities when it comes to investing; where and how they invest as well as how they manage risk. Acknowledging the need to reduce the #genderwealthgap, EXANTE has launched the Women Who Invest campaign, a platform where women can learn from other women about the different areas of finance and investing and share their own experiences. It includes blogs, webinars, videos and live events.
We are proud of this recognition by the FTAdviser jury and we’ll continue to set the bar high in diversity, inclusion and female empowerment.
