Lloyd's of London boss Inga Beale has been named the City's top LGBT executive.
Beale was ranked sixth globally by professional LGBT membership organisation OutStanding. Meanwhile, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce came top, recognised for his campaigning for equal marriage in Australia.
They were joined by Stacey Friedman, general counsel at JP Morgan Chase, in second place and Jim Fitterling, chief operating officer for material sciences at DowDuPont, who came third.
Among other Britons on the list were Siobhan Martin, executive director of HR in the UK and Ireland at Mercer, and David Hynam, the chief executive of Bupa UK, ranked ninth and tenth respectively overall.
“Being recognised so prominently is a huge honour," said Joyce.
"I share the belief that world leaders and companies have a responsibility to ensure everyone feels they can bring their whole self to work. This will only be possible if people continue to drive LGBT inclusion and push for policy change.
“No one should feel like they need to live a double life, or don’t have access to the same opportunities as everyone else. I hope more LGBT business leaders and sllies join me in visibly celebrating diverse sexuality in the workplace."
