Palatine becomes a signatory of the Investing in Women Code


We see private equity as a force for good and are committed to promoting an inclusive culture within Palatine, our portfolio companies and society.

With long-standing investment success, we’re in a privileged position. We want to use our tools, resources and connections to support the wider community, which is why we have chosen to become a signatory of the Investing in Women Code.

By becoming a signatory, we’ve committed to supporting the advancement of female entrepreneurship in the United Kingdom by improving female entrepreneurs’ access to tools, resources and finance from the financial services sector.

The Investing in Women code was introduced by The Department for Business and Trade in the hope of making the United Kingdom one of the most attractive countries in the world to start and grow a business through advancing female entrepreneurship.

The Code is designed for all organisations that finance entrepreneurs and commits signatories to promoting female entrepreneurship by:

  • Having a nominated member of the senior leadership team who will be responsible for supporting equality in access to finance
  • Increasing the transparency of financial services firms’ data concerning support for female entrepreneurs
  • Adopting internal practices to improve the outlook for female entrepreneurs

Palatine is committed to a culture of inclusion, which extends from our internal actions to our investment activities. In 2022, the gap widened between the average financing for women-led vs male-led businesses, which is why we felt now was the right time to sign up to the Investing in Women Code and be proactive in our approach to inclusive investment.
