Refinitiv signs Women in Finance Charter for third consecutive year

Building on its commitment to a more gender-balanced and fair financial services industry 

New York / London - Refinitiv is proud to be a signatory and sponsor of the Women in Finance Charter, a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to promote gender balance across the UK financial services industry.

Refinitiv committed to achieving a minimum of 40% female representation in senior leadership globally. Our initial target was 30% of women in senior leadership. We achieved this target and therefore set a further target of 40%. We have made progress toward this target and already achieved 40% of women in our Executive Leadership Team. We anticipate we will end the year at 34% for our broader senior leadership team.

As we combine with the London Stock Exchange Group, which shares the commitment to 40%, one of the priorities of the Group will be to continue and accelerate the achievement of our ambition.

By signing the Women in Finance Charter, Refinitiv is joining more than 330 other signatories who are also committed to support the progression of women into senior roles in financial services, create a diversity strategy with internal targets, and publicly report on progress delivered against these internal targets.

Refinitiv was previously a signatory to the Women in Finance Charter when it was the Financial & Risk business of Thomson Reuters, having joined in 2016 as the first signatory outside the banking sector.
