Phoenix Group Pledges to Improve Diversity Across Investment Sector

UK-based long-term savings and retirement business Phoenix Group has become a signatory to the Asset Owner Diversity Charter. Signatories commit to a series of actions to help improve all forms of diversity across the investment sector. These actions include asset owners incorporating diversity questions into their asset manager selection process and monitoring processes and collaborating with others in the investment industry to better promote diversity and inclusion as best practice. Valeria Piani, Head of Stewardship at the Phoenix Group, said: “By being a signatory of the Asset Owner Diversity Charter, we hope to play our role in the drive towards greater diversity in the investment industry. As much as we are expecting investee companies to attract and nurture a diverse pool of talent to be more resilient and successful, we are extending the same expectations to our asset management partners that are responsible to deliver returns for our customers.”
