ionStar is proud to be one of the founding signatories of the Women in Finance Charter launched in March 2016 by HM Treasury. The Women in Finance Charter is a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to support and aspire to a more gender-balanced industry.
The Charter reflects the government’s intention to reach a place where gender balance is apparent at all levels across the financial services industry which benefits customers, profitability and workplace culture. The culture and values of ionStar are very much aligned with the aims of the Women in Finance Charter.
ionStar is a full service compliance boutique offering a range of compliance advice and support across financial services, enabling its clients to flex their compliance resource up or down as needed. We draw on a talented pool of compliance professionals who have previously worked in-house at leading City firms or with regulators. Our professionals are motivated to work but they no longer want to work in a traditional way. They desire a healthy work/life balance and flexibility. The economy benefits as previously lost talent, often female, returns to the market and current talent is retained.
The Charter asks financial firms to support the progression of women into senior roles, set internal targets to improve diversity in the workforce, and publicly report on these goals. ionStar is committed to fully support the Charter by continuing with their approach to gender diversity, and in particular the encouragement and enabling of women to return to work or remain in their profession whilst working flexibly.
