It is clear that increasing women’s participation in investment is critical not only for their personal prosperity, but will also help increase the allocation of capital that benefits the society and environment. Today, women still invest at a lower rate than men, and the investment industry can do more to engage women and inspire them to invest.
Inclusive investment means ensuring the investment industry is accessible to all. At BNY Mellon Investment Management, we are committed to doing our part to better engage not only women – but all genders – to encourage investment and boost diversity overall. By doing this – we hope more women will not only invest, but also see the industry as a great place to work.
