Gender Equality

Why?

Promoting gender equality makes sense socially, and investing in companies that score well in the area encourages more companies to adopt good practice. It also makes financial sense: companies that score well on gender equality have actually made investors 10.7% more than those that don’t over the past 6 years.

How?

tickr’s Gender Equality theme invests in companies that score highly on four areas of measurement:  

  1. Gender balance in leadership & workforce
  2. Equal compensation & work life balance
  3. Policies promoting gender equality
  4. Commitment to transparency and accountability
