JM Finn has signed up to the Women in Finance Charter.

The charter, which now has over 300 signatory companies across financial services, is a commitment by HM Treasury and the firms to work toward improving the gender balance in the industry.

Upon signing the charter, JM Finn’s senior executive team are required to agree on formal goals to improve gender equality and be held accountable to them.

‘We are delighted to sign up to the charter which we believe will help all of us across the industry put diversity, sustainability and quality at the top of our agendas,’ said Dominic May, JM Finn's chief finance officer.

He added: ‘Initiating our mentoring scheme, committing to enhance our hiring policy and rolling out pre- and post-maternity training to all employees are examples of some of the actions we are taking as part of our commitment to the charter.’

Earlier this year, Brewin Dolphin and Brown Shipley signed up to the charter, joining the likes of Close Brothers, Hargreaves Lansdown, Investec Wealth & Investment and LGT Vestra.
