CITY VIEWS: DO YOU THINK INITIATIVES TO GET MORE WOMEN ONTO UK BOARDS ARE WORKING?

ANDREW PELL | J CHAHINE CAPITAL

“As an asset manager we care about results, whether they’re from women or men. But I don’t think the initiatives that have been put in place are working – there are a lot of scenarios associated with sexism still in place in City companies.”

LAWRENCE EDWARDS | LIQUID CAPITAL

“No, there still aren't enough women on boards in UK companies. There clearly needs to be more initiatives because women should be doing more across the board in the City!”

JULIE SEALES | NATIONWIDE

“There definitely aren’t enough women on boards in the City, and there hasn’t been any noticeable change since the initiatives were put in place. The City has always been male dominated. Woman are important on the boards, the only problem is how to do it.”
