Board Diversity

The Board notes the recommendations of the Davies Review on Women on Boards and has due regard for the benefits of greater diversity. The Davies Review recommended that companies should set out the percentage of women they aim to have on their Boards in 2013 and 2015. The Board does not feel that it would be appropriate to set targets, as all appointments must be made on merit. However gender and wider diversity issues will be taken into consideration when evaluating the skills, knowledge and experience desirable to fill each Board vacancy. We will report on Board diversity annually.

Diversity is important to Capco across the Group. The Board recognises the benefits that diversity, including gender diversity, brings and has adopted a Board Diversity Policy which can be viewed here.

We recognise the business benefits of employing people with varied outlooks. 10% of Capco's Board is female and we are keen to develop female talent and the ratio of women to men within our Senior Management team is 1:2. Further information on our people practices, including our learning and development strategies, can be found in the Corporate Responsibility section of our website.
