Women in Finance Charter

MT Finance believes gender balance is crucial to the success of our business, which is why we signed the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter.

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.

As part of our commitment to the Charter we have set ourselves the following internal targets for gender diversity:

  • Maintaining 50% of women in senior management by January 2020
  • Adding at least one female candidate to the board of directors by 2020
  • Boosting awareness of gender diversity across the company
  • Continually reviewing our employment processes to ensure we’re encouraging all types of diversity
  • Operating an annual salary review to ensure equal pay is in practice
  • Maintaining our equal employee gender split (tolerance of 10%) across the entire workforce

In line with the charter’s commitments, Millie Dyson, Head of Marketing & Communications, is MT Finance’s senior staff member responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion.

An update on our progress:

In July 2018, MT Finance signed HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter. The Charter is a pledge for firms to work together to help build greater gender balance in financial services

MT Finance believes gender balance is crucial to the success of our business, and as part of our commitment to the Charter we pledged the following internal targets for gender diversity:

  • Maintaining 50% of women in senior management by January 2020
  • Adding at least one female candidate to the board of directors by 2020
  • Boosting awareness of gender diversity across the company
  • Continually reviewing our employment processes to ensure we’re encouraging all types of diversity
  • Operating an annual salary review to ensure equal pay is in practice
  • Maintaining our equal employee gender split (tolerance of 10%) across the entire workforce

In line with the charter’s commitments, Millie Dyson, Head of Marketing & Communications, is MT Finance’s senior staff member responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion.

We have made positive progress against our pledges and our targets set for completion by January 2020 were broadly met.

We continue to measure the number of women at each level of the organisation. Female representation in senior management increased to 60% in 2020, from 50% in 2019. Overall, female representation in the business is currently at 45%- up from 40% in the same period in 2019.

While we are pleased to have met or surpassed the majority of our targets- the adding of at least one female candidate to the board of directors by 2020 was not met. We remain focused in our efforts to maintain a gender balanced leadership team and recommit this target to September 2021.

We are proud to promote an inclusive environment at MT Finance and strive to drive genuine change in the financial services sector.
