Over three-quarters of investment managers are male, while over four in ten are white British, according to research by the Diversity Project.

Only 1% recorded themselves as Black, African, Caribbean or Black British, while just under one in twenty (4%) reported a disability, compared to 3% and 11% of the respective population as a whole.

The stark figures were revealed in the Diversity Project's benchmarking study, published 18 September, which surveyed 650 asset managers from 24 firms with more than £2.2trn of assets under management (AuM).
