Support the Project
The Wealth Management & Financial Advice industry has a perception issue and is often seen as traditional, stuffy, boring, with an inherent slant to white middle class men, alongside reputational and trust issues with financial services in general. As I’m sure you have experienced, this has a significant impact on the ability of firms to attract and retain the best talent.
The make it campaign is here to overturn these perceptions and highlight that our industry can be a force for good, helping people through the difficult financial moments of their lives and helping them plan for the future – be that for retirement or whatever other goals they may have.
make it is a bold call to action for new talent from all kinds of backgrounds to come in and shape old traditions into something better, while ‘making it’ in their career.
This PIMFA project has been guided by a steering group of industry CEOs, HR Directors and
up-and-coming talent in the industry, and presents a bright new future for the sector; one that is
responsible, equitable and inclusive, but more than this, one that shows we understand the issues and are capable of change.
Part of PIMFA’s TIDE initiative to increase Talent, Inclusion, Diversity and Equity within the Wealth Management & Financial Advice workforce, make it is a campaign we want everyone in the
sector to participate with.
That’s why we’ve created this toolkit, for you to use, so your firm can join in with the campaign and
hep make our industry a more attractive place to start a career and work in – for people from every kind of background.
