22ND MARCH 2017, LONDON.
ActivTrades is the first finance broker to sign the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter,
which supports gender diversity in the financial services industry. Created in March
2016, the Charter has gathered the support of over 120 leading financial organisations
including Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse and Barclays Bank.
The Charter encourages businesses within the sector to have a greater gender balance
of staff in senior executive positions. ActivTrades’ Marketing Associate, Alicia Ortega
stated: “It is fantastic that there is an increasing emphasis on having a fair and diverse
workforce in the financial industry, something which ActivTrades has been in support of
since we established in 2001.”
In a press release from the HM Treasury it said “The Charter’s innovative approach has
been an unprecedented success with some of the UK’s biggest and most well established
firms signing up… ActivTrades is the first finance broker to lead the charge.”
On 29th June 2017, HM Treasury will hold the inaugural Women in Finance Awards at The
Savoy in London. These awards will celebrate the individuals and organisations who are
leading change by driving the gender diversity agenda in financial services.
