InterInvest is made up of LGBT+ people and allies that work in the investment industry, who care about the LGBT+ experience in investment. Our network of investment peers also forms part of the LGBT+ workstream of the Diversity Project.
We know LGBT+ people work in every part of our industry; we exist to drive LGBT+ equality and inclusion across the UK industry, and support similar initiatives globally.
We began as an informal but regular gathering of LGBT+ professionals and allies who wanted to discuss issues facing LGBT+ people in the industry, and initiatives firms were working on to further LGBT+ interests across the industry. In 2019, we became a more formal organisation with over 20 firms represented. As a result our objectives evolved into four key aims, to:
- Provide a welcoming space for members to discuss LGBT+ issues in the context of the industry;
- Share best practice within the industry, and enable firm-to-firm collaboration to provide support to in-house LGBT+ networks;
- Encourage and shape LGBT+ inclusion across the industry; Attract and retain LGBT+ talent into the industry;
- Engage allies and promote allyship, drawing upon other intersectional networks with similar experiences.
As an organisation, we meet monthly, with our steering committee and subcommittees meeting on a more regular basis.
We know our aims won’t be achieved overnight, but we are committed to ensuring the investment industry is one that welcomes, includes and celebrates its LGBT+ colleagues.
