Jupiter’s development as a successful business has been driven by diversity of opinion and independent thinking. It is central to our investment approach and to our talent management and recruitment programmes. Our aim is to employ the best people from the widest pool of applicants and support their career aspirations. We view diversity in its broadest sense – including gender, social background, race, sexuality, age, disability, learning style or religion – as key to the Company achieving its long-term goals.
Jupiter is committed to promoting mutual understanding and respect amongst its employees and the broader industry by valuing and supporting individuality. We facilitate schemes such as Investment 20/20 and offer traineeships and apprenticeships to college leavers and graduates. From an industry perspective, we are signatories of the Women in Finance Charter and a founding member of the Diversity Project.
Jupiter has a distinct culture and fosters an inclusive environment which allows employees the freedom to think differently. This means that individual employees not only can have a demonstrable impact on what the business does, but also how it’s done. By focusing on identifying, developing, retaining and rewarding talent, and ensuring equality of opportunity, we will continue to deliver the right outcomes for our clients and build a sustainable and growing business in the long term.
Our overarching philosophy for achieving an inclusive environment for diverse talent is made up of three key components:
- a broader approach to D&I – we are committed to looking at all areas, including disability, ethnicity, gender, neurodiversity, sexual orientation and socio-economics;
- a commitment to change mindsets through education and the evolution of corporate culture; and
- ensuring that everyone is accountable
