Thinking About Our Future

At Rathbones, we see responsible investment as the purposeful integration of environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) considerations into investment management processes and ownership practices.

We see it as our responsibility to invest for everyone’s tomorrow. That means doing the right thing for our clients and for others too. Keeping the future in mind when we make decisions today. Looking beyond the short term for the most sustainable outcome. This is how we build enduring value for our clients, make a wider contribution to society and create a lasting legacy. Thinking, acting and investing responsibly. 

Diversity And Inclusion

We want Rathbones to be a company where everyone has the opportunity to build a successful career and find the right balance between work and personal life, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, religion or background.

We are an equal opportunity employer, and it is our policy to ensure that all job applicants and employees are treated fairly and on merit regardless of their race, gender, marital status, age, disability, religious belief, or sexual orientation.
