The FSC was proud to launch the FSC Women in Investment Management Charter (WIM Charter) at a recent joint event with Mercer, which delivered solutions to improve gender diversity in investment management. As part of the WIM Charter launch, we surveyed our domestic and global fund manager members on gender diversity in their investment teams, focusing on roles that are actively involved in an investment function or that have an investment execution role, such as portfolio managers, investment research roles or traders, for example.
