Diversity, Equality & Inclusion: Investing for Everyone's Future

At Rathbones, we embrace the different experiences and perspectives we all bring. And we are taking steps to create an environment that is inclusive and equal for everyone. Because we believe we all make our strongest contribution when we feel we truly belong.

Creating an inclusive recruitment process

Through our hiring process, we make conscious decisions to break down structures that are biased against under-represented groups and make sure our opportunities are open to everyone.

Rather than looking for specific skills alone, we value different perspectives, personalities and qualities that challenge the status quo. The world is changing, the investment environment is evolving – and we welcome people who will push us to change our approach too.

How we are driving positive DE&I change

Acting and thinking responsibly is central to our culture, and we have cemented these values in our DE&I strategy. Everyone at Rathbones plays a role in harnessing the power of our diversity and standing up for what’s right. So we celebrate team members who act as allies for under-represented colleagues and show DE&I leadership.

We have chosen key partners to support us in creating the diverse, equal and inclusive Rathbones we want:

  • Women in Finance charter
  • 10,000 Black Interns Programme
  • Business Disability Forum
  • Inclusive Companies
  • Future Assets

We have made a solid start, but we want to go further. We won’t shy away from the challenges of increasing diversity and we are actively seeking to learn more about our colleagues’ lived experiences so we can factor their views into how we work together.
