Strategy

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.

Leadership Commitment

Since day one, diversity and inclusion have been at the core of Investcorp’s business, with our founding leadership comprising professionals from around the world. We continue to build on this global legacy today as our firm brings together individuals from 50 different nationalities. Given our global roots and community, maintaining and promoting a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment is a key priority. We continue to champion diversity at our firm and across our portfolios, drawing on each and every person’s unique background and experiences for the social good of our constituencies.

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.

Practice
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.
