FCA gives speech on diversity and inclusion

Georgina Philippou, Senior Adviser to FCA on the Public Sector Equality Duty gave a speech at the launch of a report by the Investment Associate and Eversheds entitled “Building Ethnic Diversity and Inclusion in Investment Management”.

The speech addressed:

  • diversity and inclusion within FCA itself as an employer;
  • how diversity and inclusion considerations inform the ways in which FCA tries to influence firms’ culture through regulation; and
  • the ways in which FCA’s status as a public body and particularly its being subject to the Public Sector Equality Duty require it to consider diversity and inclusion in all of its interactions with firms.
