Diversity makes sound commercial sense

June Felix, CEO, IG


I believe without any doubt whatsoever that equality, fairness, meritocracy, openness and diversity of thought are the most important qualities that any organisation can have.

At IG I lead a business that is targeting growth through innovation and technology; using our expertise to extend into new products and new markets.

We have some ambitious targets – goals that we will only achieve by attracting and retaining the best people from the broadest possible pool and providing them an environment where they can bring their very best each day.

We know that to win in rapidly-changing global markets, gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation and religion are immaterial. Regardless of anyone’s background, what we are looking for are people who will make our organisation better – not because they fit in and think the same way, but because they bring unique perspectives and experiences.

Diversity of thought is not only the right thing to do – it makes sound commercial sense too, and so in my business we are right behind the #eachforequal campaign and share your view that an equal world is an enabled world.”providing them an environment where they can bring their very best each day.
