Why is diversity and inclusion so important?

Some speaking at a talk


Private equity investing within the tech sector is highly competitive; to maintain a leading position you must innovate on every front. As well as cultivating an inclusive environment, Hg needs to recruit, retain and advance a team of the best possible investment and operational talent from the broadest possible pool of candidates.

Trust and collaboration are the foundation for strong relationships, the underpinning of our work – and success.
