Diversity, equality and inclusion

A sea of marathon runners, viewed from above

At Investec Wealth & Investment (UK), we celebrate the principles of diversity, equality, and inclusion (DE&I) and value every person's unique strengths and positive contributions they bring to us and our clients.

Like Rathbones Group Plc, which we are part of, we believe that by embracing our differences and diversity of thought, we can make better decisions and instil creativity and innovation into everything we do.


Our approach to recruitment and development is focused around aptitude and attitude, aiming to intentionally construct a diverse workforce. We actively seek diversity by engaging with minority groups and other underrepresented segments, along with supporting our leaders to advance diversity in their teams.

Employee experience

Our employee value proposition is centred around our purpose and culture, serving as a guiding force for behaviour, expectations, communication, diversity, and creating meaningful work and client experiences. We want work to be a place where being authentic is effortless.

Equal opportunity

We are passionate about equal opportunity and reject all forms of discrimination, be it related to gender, race, religion, age, disability, and more.

Targets and measures

We track our progress internally and externally. 

Women in Finance Charter

When we signed up to the Charter in 2018, we had 20% female representation as at 31 March 2018. In 2023 we set a new target of 35% by 2027, having reached our previous target of 30%. We are currently on track to reach our new target. As of March 2023, we have 44% female representation in senior management, and we remain committed to increasing female representation throughout the organisation.
