Women In Finance Charter Mark

We are proud to have become one of the signatories of HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter which aims to support gender diversity at all levels across financial firms. Around 162 financial firms have signed up to the Charter which covers almost half of the financial sector.

As part of our commitment to the Women in Finance Charter we pledge to promote gender diversity by:

  • having one member of our senior executive team who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion;
  • setting internal targets for gender diversity in our senior management;
  • publishing progress annually against these targets in reports on our website; and
  • having an intention to ensure the pay of the senior executive team is linked to delivery against these internal targets on gender diversity

Nicola Payne is the senior team member who is responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion at Becketts.  She is supported by Samantha Owen.

Gender Diversity At Becketts

Our firm enjoys exceptionally high levels of gender diversity across all levels. Here are the current levels of gender diversity as at Q1 2019:

All of Becketts

Becketts Board

We first published our gender diversity information at the end of Q3 2017 and, since then, the split has altered – but not significantly.  This is because we have recruited new staff to help with our growth and made some changes to our structure.  However, gender diversity is a valuable part of our firm’s ethos and continues to be as important as when we first signed up to the Women In Finance Charter in 2017.
