DIVERSE & ENGAGED
Comgest is an international, multicultural group of more than 180 employees, representing over 30 nationalities and offices in 9 countries. We view our diversity and broad range of experiences, skillsets and views as a key to our success. We aim to maintain a gender balance in the workplace, which currently consists of around 46% women and 54% men, with 27% of our analysts and portfolio managers being women.
Our foundations and growth are due to our partnership culture. From our founders to our interns, we seek out talented professionals that we believe can go the distance – reinforcing our group, our business and our future.
Our capital is financial and human. We aim to engage not just our clients, but our employees in order to sustain our broad partnership. We encourage continued professional development via employee training that is tailored to needs and potential.
Social and environmental responsibility are embedded in our day-to-day activities, conduct and business. Embedding these values into the firm's responsible investment policy helps improve society, but also reinforces client and employee trust.
In addition to being an asset manager, The Comgest Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Comgest Group and is dedicated to the support of various projects, such as education, supporting people with disabilities or other programmes which aim to improve the lives of people in need. Comgest employees act as 'ambassadors' to nominate potential projects and to follow up on their progress.
