What is Lancashire's policy on Boardroom diversity?

The Board of Lancashire Holdings Limited has updated and approved the following statement on the representation of women on the Board of Directors, on executive committees and in senior management: 

“In the “Women on Boards” report of February 2011, Lord Davies recommended that FTSE 350 companies should set their own targets for female representation on the board of directors. In his review report issued in April 2013, Lord Davies further recommended that FTSE 350 companies, by the end of September 2013, set out the percentage of women they aim to have on both their executive committees and in senior management levels.  In October 2015 Lord Davies recommended that the voluntary target for women’s representation on boards of FTSE 350 companies should be raised to a minimum of 33% to be achieved in the next five years. In the spring of 2016 the UK Treasury published the “Women in Finance Charter” (the “Charter”) inviting financial services firms to become signatories. Subscribers are asked to commit to the adoption of internal targets on gender diversity.

In recent years this subject has been discussed by the Board. Whilst wholly sympathetic to the objective of increasing diversity, the Board remains of the view that the skills and experience needed to take the business of the company forward are of paramount importance in selecting Board members, members of executive committees and senior management and that it is not appropriate to adopt a fixed percentage target for any one feature of diversity, in this case gender, in case doing so compromises the paramount objective. And it is not obvious that gender diversity should be treated differently from other diversity issues. The Board has therefore decided not to subscribe to the Charter but is supportive of its broad objective.

We are actively engaged in expanding and improving the quality of experience and perspective of the Lancashire Board of Directors and have every intention of steering those efforts towards more female Board representation.  Within the executive management team and throughout its business, the Lancashire Group has for many years benefitted from a broad gender diversity. Having discussed these issues with a number of the company’s major shareholders (and previously with Lord Davies himself) we have found amongst the company’s shareholders no appetite to compromise the paramount objective of seeking to maintain an effective Board of Directors and management team for the company. Both the company’s shareholders and stakeholders will note that as at July 2016, the percentage of female representation on the Board of Lancashire Holdings Limited stood at 28.6%.

In compliance with the FRC’s UK Corporate Governance Code, since 2012 a description of the LHL Board’s policy on diversity, including gender, has been included in the Company’s Annual Reports, together with statistics relevant to the gender composition of the LHL Board, group management and overall group employees.”
