In this report, we seek to further our research into the impact of diversity on corporate performance. Following The Credit Suisse Gender 3000:Women in Senior Management, which focused on gender diversity, we decided to apply a similar analytical framework to LGBT diversity.
Our hypothesis continues to be that diversity brings financial benefits to organisations and investors. Companies with at least 1 female director have delivered an excess share price CAGR of 3.4% over the past 10 years compared to all male boards. To test LGBT diversity, we have built a basket of 270 companies supporting and embracing LGBT employees, the LGBT 270.
