City A.M: Asset managers make greater diversity charge

A new think tank report finds that, on the back of the Davies Review and Hampton-Alexandra Review,  ASSET managers are stepping up their efforts to press for more diversity, increasingly voting against board chairs and nomination committee chairs where not enough progress has been made on gender diversity.

This comes just as separate research from Green Park’s Leadership 10,000 report, highlights that the Retail sector is leading the way in the FTSE 100, with an above average gender diversity scoring of 28.5% female representation on boards, while the FTSE 100 average stands at 24.3%.
