Bloomberg today announced the 2017 Financial Services Gender-Equality Index (BFGEI), providing investors and organizations with unique insight into the statistics, policies, product offerings and external engagement driving 52 firms’ commitment to building gender-equal workplaces. Bloomberg also introduced a Fixed Income Gender-Equality Index, representing investment grade debt issued by the 2017 BFGEI member firms.
“Companies are increasingly focused on managing operational risks, including the attraction and retention of employees,” said Angela Sun, Head of Strategy and Corporate Development at Bloomberg. “As investors look for new drivers of risk-aware alpha, the demand for data around gender equality and other social and governance metrics continues to grow. The BFGEI brings greater transparency to the practices and policies crucial to managing those risks and attracting investor capital.”
