VIDEO: Investing for impact – Diversity & Inclusion
Did you know that a more gender-diverse corporate workforce, as represented by women across all levels of management, is correlated with higher-than-average company investment returns? A 2023 study of global companies by Morgan Stanley found that those successful in achieving gender diversity have outperformed their less-gender-diverse peers by 1.2% per year between 2011 and 2022*.
In this video, hear from Thembeka Stemela Dagbo, Fund Manager at M&G Investments (UK). Thembeka manages a range of investment strategies aimed at delivering meaningful positive outcomes, while addressing societal and environmental challenges. She shares her views from a global perspective on the Diversity and Inclusion strategy and navigating the investment landscape.
This was filmed in October at the M&G Investments diversity and inclusion in investing breakfast.
