Diverse teams bring diverse perspectives that enhance value for our employees, investors and partners. To achieve our objective of adding greater diversity across our Firm, portfolio companies, and the asset management industry, our strategy focuses on three core areas: People, Policy and Practice. This includes diverse recruitment; initiatives to support employee belonging, health & well-being; expanded DEI training; and regularly reporting on our progress.

Defining DEI at Investcorp
Our primary goal is not only to attract individuals of different backgrounds & experiences, but also to provide them an opportunity to feel safe, grow and feel a sense of belonging within Investcorp. A values-grounded and diverse set of talent helps us become better leaders for tomorrow. Through an open, inclusive, and diverse culture, we are able to bridge gaps through mutual understanding, transparency, and dialogue.
We are creating and evolving industry-competitive policies that support our employees’ well-being with healthcare, wellness, and flexibility. More comprehensive and clearer policy makes us more accountable to our goals over the long-term and creates a healthier culture.
Employees undergo all types of training – teamwork, leadership, communication, networking, and DEI inclusion – on an annual basis. Workshops are held internally to strengthen awareness and inform better DEI tactics. Expanding an employee’s skillsets will aid their career growth.
