RBS is committed to improving gender balances at all levels across the bank.

The index provides investors and organisations with standardised aggregate data across company gender statistics; employee policies; gender-conscious product offerings; and external community support and engagement.

Those included in this year's index scored at or above 60 points, a global threshold established by Bloomberg to reflect disclosure and the achievement or adoption of best-in-class statistics and policies. RBS scored 88 points which is well above the average of 75 points.

"We are encouraged by the significant expansion of this year's index, and by the leadership each of our member firms has demonstrated," said Peter T. Grauer, Chairman of Bloomberg and Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club. "Their commitments to building diverse and inclusive work environments are setting new standards around the globe and raising awareness around the challenges all of our organisations face."

Marjorie Strachan, RBS Group Head of Inclusion said: “RBS is proud to showcase our strong commitment to gender equality, and alongside our peers, better understand the gender-equality related issues that our employees, customers and communities face.”
