A note from Jen Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer, AllianceBernstein Australia Limited (ABAL):

“I am pleased to have been involved with the recent initiative, launched by the Financial Services Council and in particular the FSC Diversity Working Group, in extending the 2020 Guidance Note 38: Improving Gender Balance within Investment Management teams to incorporate a Women in Investment Management Charter.

I’m incredibly proud that AB, through the express commitment of our Australian Equity team, has signed up to this Charter. We are one of eight Fund Manager members who have committed to the Charter at its launch.

While I’m confident there will be increasing support over time, it’s fantastic to see AB leading the charge to support a continued focus on strengthening gender diversity within our local investment management team over time.”

More information about the initiative can be found in the press release issued by the Financial Services Council.
