Women in Finance Charter

Janus Henderson is committed to improving diversity for the benefit of the company, our clients, and our people. We will continue with the work underway on our entry-level talent programmes and investing in our women in senior leadership curriculum, designed to help prepare women for senior management roles. We will carry on discovering diverse and innovative recruitment feeds and identifying ways of addressing unconscious bias through a range of training initiatives. We will support and promote our flexible hybrid working environment, and inclusive policies and leverage our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Regional Councils across the organisation to ensure that good regional practices are shared and implemented effectively.

Our UK female representation is 36% of the total employee population, which is 1% lower than in 2022. When we signed the Charter in June 2017 our female senior managers percentage was 16%. Although we have been making annual gains in this number, in the last year, we have seen a decline in female senior managers as a percentage of total senior management by -1% to 19%. Although we saw a slight decline in 2023, we believe we are on track to reach our goal of 25% by 2028.

In addition, we committed to supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition.
