Fleet Mortgages has signed the Women in Finance Charter, a commitment by HM Treasury and signatory firms to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry. Firms that sign up to this Charter are pledging to be the best businesses in the sector.
Fleet Mortgages is a subsidiary of Starling Bank, the UK’s first digital-only bank. Founded by Anne Boden, the first female founder of a British bank, Anne is widely recognised for revolutionising the banking sector and for putting diversity at the heart of Starling.

We are committed to creating a culture of equality and we believe that it is people’s skills, knowledge and experience that matter, regardless of their gender, race, religion or anything else.
