Allianz is proud to be one of more than 370 firms across the financial services sector who have signed up to the HM Treasury ‘Women in Finance Charter’ – a commitment to gender balance across financial services.
The Women in Finance Charter was created in March 2016. Its main aim is to support gender diversity at all levels within financial firms and to build a more balanced and fair industry.
When we signed up to the Charter in 2017 we had 32.7% female representation. As of December 2022, we have 37.1% female representation in senior management. Our new ambition is to have 40% females in senior roles by the end of 2024.
We are continuing our focus on this area of diversity and inclusion in order to maintain and further strengthen our position. Economic Dividend for Gender Equality (EDGE) is a renowned external certification and we’re pleased to have started 2022 as globally EDGE certified. In the UK we achieved the ‘Move’ level certification (similar to a Silver in a Bronze, Silver, Gold scale) and will use the detailed EDGE overview to help us achieve the highest level of certification. Talent management, workplace strategies and a wider diversity and inclusion agenda and culture are complementing each other as enablers for sustainable improvement of our gender balance.
