Diversity & Inclusion

Our Statement on Diversity and Inclusion

We believe that it is important to have a diverse and inclusive workforce. Our vision is to foster an inclusive culture that leverages the contributions of our staff with many backgrounds and perspectives to arrive at better investment decision making that ultimately drives our success. 

This means we treat one another with mutual respect, while contributing to an inclusive work environment where different points of view can be raised and respected. We do not tolerate discrimination, harassment or any behaviour which creates an intimidating, hostile and offensive work environment.

In our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we will develop and implement initiatives that are applicable across our firmwide practices and policies including recruitment, professional development, compensation, promotions. This includes:

  • Hiring more women in investment and business lead roles
  • Shortlisting and interviewing at least one female candidate for each open position
  • Mentorship opportunities for our female employees
  • Establishing female employee networks and planning networking opportunities at our Firm
  • Where possible, appoint and promote women to leadership roles at portfolio companies, (including C-suite roles or portfolio company boards)

Diversity and Inclusion is championed at the highest level of Affinity.

We are a proud signatory of the ILPA Diversity in Action Initiative, and regularly participate in industry dialogues on this topic.
