mtf signs up to the Women in Finance Charter

We are delighted to announce mtf is one of 67 companies that has signed up to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter today.

Today’s signatories also include: J.P. Morgan, Admiral Group, Equifax and Yorkshire Building Society, taking the total number of signatories to 272.

The Charter is a pledge for firms to work together to help build greater gender balance in financial services and according to HM Treasury, now covers over 760,000 financial services employees in the UK.

mtf is proud to commit to the Charter and we have set ourselves several targets including: maintaining 50% women in our senior management team and we are aiming for female representation on the board of directors within the next 12 months.

The Charter

  • commits firms to supporting the progression of women into senior roles in the financial services sector by focusing on the executive pipeline and the mid-tier level;
  • recognises the diversity of the sector and that firms will have different starting points – each firm should therefore set its own targets and implement the right strategy for their organisation;
  • requires firms to publicly report on progress to deliver against these internal targets to support the transparency and accountability needed to drive change.
