Women in Finance Charter

Columbia Threadneedle is proud to be the first UK asset manager to commit to the Government's Women in Finance charter. Alison Jefferis, Head of Corporate Affairs EMEA and Asia Pacific, comments: "We believe the asset management industry has an opportunity to be a driving force for gender diversity. Many women are already thriving in asset management, enjoying long, flexible and prosperous careers. Our business serves a diverse population.

At a time when individual investors face increasing challenges, our industry needs a broad mix of experience, ideas and opinions to help us understand and deliver the financial outcomes our customers expect - a diverse management team is key to that."
