Fairness and equality
We value the contributions made by all of our employees and believe that a diverse workforce is key to maximising business effectiveness. We aim to select, recruit, develop and promote the very best people and are committed to creating a workplace where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and where individual difference is valued.
This is accomplished by:
- Ensuring equal opportunities in the recruitment process
- Paying fair and competitive salaries and having reasonable family and well-being policies
- Being opposed to any form of less favourable treatment, whether through direct or indirect discrimination, harassment or victimisation, accorded to employees and applicants for employment on the grounds of sex, sexual orientation, marital or parental status, disability, race, religious beliefs, age, ethnic or national origin, or any other protected characteristic.
Unlike traditional investment companies we have a dedicated internal investment management team whose entire focus is on creating long-term value for our shareholders. Our employees are fully aligned through our remuneration policy, ensuring that outperformance is suitably recognised in both annual bonus and Long-term Incentive Plan awards.
We recognise the benefits of diversity and the value this brings to the Group. We aim to maintain the right blend of skills, experience and knowledge in the Board and investment management team.
