Diversity & Inclusion Statement
At Jupiter, we believe diversity and inclusion is a simple concept – to have the right people, regardless of background, in the right role. Diversity is the mix; inclusion is getting the mix to work well together.
We believe that the differences between individuals are something to be valued as they enable us to be robust and flexible as a business to better serve our stakeholders.
We are committed to growing and nurturing diversity within Jupiter and to promoting mutual understanding and commitment between our employees. This is backed up by a zero-tolerance policy to bullying or harassment, as respect and tolerance are key to maintaining our high-performance culture.
The following goals have been agreed:
- We will implement unconscious bias training for our leadership team
- We will conduct regular employee surveys to ensure we understand current diversity and inclusion issues and that they are consistently being addressed
- In order to build a healthy gender balance into our talent pipeline, we will aim for 40% female participation on our high potential programme
- We will ensure that women are engaged in the company-wide mentoring programme, both as mentors and mentees

Jupiter’s Corporate Values are at the core of our business and reflect the pillars that we feel are critical to delivering good returns to our shareholders; clients, employees and society.
Our values underpin both the way we work with external clients but also how we work with each other and are integral in our internal initiatives, processes and performance management.
Jupiter’s Corporate Values…
Our primary responsibility is to our clients who entrust their savings to our management. We aim to protect and grow their assets and provide an excellent service.
Every employee can make a difference to Jupiter. We value individual talent and independent thought and seek to give freedom to employees to deliver. We do this within a team framework where respect, high standards and innovation are key to our high performance culture.
We aim to make a positive contribution to society as managers of other people’s money. We seek to do so by increasing the value of our clients’ savings in the way we run money and by behaving in an ethical manner.
We believe that if we live by our values Jupiter will be a profitable and sustainable company which provides fair returns to clients, staff and shareholders.
