Women in Finance

The Melton is proud to be a signatory to the Women in Finance Charter, a Government initiative launched in 2016 to improve gender diversity in senior positions within the financial services sector.  We believe that diversity is good for business, bringing a mix of skills, cultures, and views that ensure we can make better decisions across our organisation for the benefit of our members.

The Society has, over many years, maintained a gender balance across all levels of leadership within the organisation, including at board level, which has been achieved whilst pursuing a strategy of appointing the right individuals for roles, regardless of gender.

We have appointed our Chief Executive, Simon Taylor as our accountable Executive in this area and set the following targets for gender diversity in our senior leadership:


Our current position July 2021

  • 43% identify as women – Non-Executive Directors
  • 44% identify as women – Executive Team and Senior Management Team

Target by end July 2022

  • 50% identify as women – Non-Executive Directors
  • 50% identify as women – Executive Team and Senior Management Team


As part of our commitment to the Women in Finance Charter, we have a minimum level for gender diversity for both our groups – Non-Executive Director gender diversity of 33% and Senior Leadership gender diversity of 40%.

Although becoming a signatory of the Charter is a new development for the Society, our pursuit of gender equality is not.  We’re proud to have a workforce that’s already diverse, but there’s always more to do!  We’ll continue working towards greater diversity and inclusion in everything we do, ensuring that opportunities and progression are available to everyone.




Following the Bank of England Base Rate increases, our Standard Variable Rate is due to increase from 4.99% to 5.39% with effect from 1st June 2022.
