In new figures published today, Legal & General disclosed that the median gender pay gap across all its UK businesses narrowed by 1.8% in 2019, and by 3.2% across its investment management division. This also marks the first year that pay gap figures from CALA, Legal & General’s recently acquired house-building business, were integrated into group-wide reporting.

Like many organisations across the diverse range of industries in which Legal & General operates, particularly financial services and investment management, the gender pay gap is the result of having historically employed more men than women in more senior, higher-paid roles – something Legal & General is working to change.
