Newton – Responsible investing: the diversity dividend

Rebecca White discusses how we engage with companies on diversity and inclusion.

  • Credible research suggests that companies with diverse teams make better decisions and crucially make for better investments.
  • Our voting and engagement policy encourages companies to increase the participation of women and ethnically diverse candidates at senior levels by growing and encouraging a diverse talent pipeline.
  • We also push for improvements in diversity and inclusion-related disclosures and strategies.

It is now widely understood that diverse groups make better decisions because they are less likely to suffer from the ‘group-think’ which can lead to sub-optimal decision making.
