Report in brief
This sector specific report audited all asset management firms listed by the Investment Association in its monthly ranking of funds under management. They were assessed for the transparency of policies for parental leave, including pay and duration, and flexible working arrangements.
The research benchmarks for the first time the extent to which firms across the investment management sector would need to improve transparency in these areas to meet the growing demands from politicians and investors for proactive disclosure of the support available.
It explores the impact of parental support on talent management, gender diversity and corporate reputation in the investment sector. Includes practical advice for how a firm can reach top “Beacon” status.
