star this property answer text <p>The fundamentals of the British economy are strong – wages are growing at the fastest rate in over a decade, employment is at a joint record high and the unemployment rate is at its lowest in over 40 years. Inflation has been at or around target since the start of 2019, and as a result wages have now outpaced inflation on a CPI basis for over a year.</p><p>On 1 April 2019, we increased the National Living Wage by 4.9% to £8.21 - an above inflation increase which meant that a full-time worker on the National Living Wage would be earning £690 more over the coming year. Supported by the National Living Wage, the lowest earners have seen their wages grow by 8% above inflation between April 2015 and April 2018.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter reflects our ambition to see an improved gender balance in the financial services industry. Charter signatories have committed to implement strategic actions to improve their gender balance at a senior level.</p><p> </p><p>To date, over 350 financial services firms have signed the Charter, covering over 800,000 people. Of these, around two thirds of signatories have headquarters in London and around one third have headquarters elsewhere in the UK.</p><p> </p><p>We only hold information on the location of each signatory’s headquarters and so we are unable to provide an estimate of how many workers in each area are covered by the Charter. For example, some of the signatory organisations headquartered in London will have locations in other areas of the country. Of the over 1 million people employed in the financial and insurance sector in the UK, 63% work outside London.</p><p> </p><p>Our second annual review of the Women in Finance Charter was published on 14 March 2019 and demonstrated that 72% of signatories had increased the proportion of women in senior management over that period. Firms who have been signed up for two years made more progress in the second year than in the first. We are in the process of gathering data for the third annual review which I hope will show further progress.</p>
