Gender Equality Certificate

As studies and research show evidence that achieving gender parity would have endless benefits, gender equality forges ahead not only as a fundamental human right, but also as a powerhouse of progress and economic strength. There is still, however, a long way ahead, and so this certificate seeks to invest in companies leading the way to a fairer, more equal future.

Gender Equality

ISIN: CH1163993145

The future of economy speaks indeed the language of equality, togetherness and empowerment. The ethical challenge is unmistakable, but gender equality is also slowly gaining momentum as an engine for financial growth, with research proving that providing equal opportunities to women would significantly catapult companies’ profitability. McKinsey’s research shows that companies in the top quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 25% more likely to have above‑average profitability than companies in the fourth quartile. Furthermore, according to the OECD, a workforce with equal participation between men and women would add an estimated 12% to the GDP.
Swissquote’s Gender Equality Certificate invests in companies that are actively contributing to closing the gender gap, paying equitable salaries, offering equal opportunities and driving gender diversity among their employees, managerial levels and boards. Naturally, companies with controversies linked to workforce and opportunity are excluded.
