    L&G fund shows Renewables Infrastructure leads the pack on gender

    Just one of Britain's top 350 companies - Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG.L) - has a "perfect" record on gender diversity, as tracked in a new fund from Legal & General Investment Management. The L&G Future World Gender in Leadership UK Index Fund, or GIRL fund, is the first such fund to focus on British firms and tilts its relative holdings of each company based on how it performs on four measures of gender diversity. Companies are graded based on the degree of female representation on the board, among the executive body, in management as well as the broader workforce, factors LGIM is pushing companies it invests in to address.

    Madame Tussauds owner says visitors still avoiding London after 2017 attacks

    Madame Tussauds owner Merlin Entertainments said on Friday visits to its London attractions were still suffering from the impact of last year's militant attacks in Britain.

"Visitation in our London division remains down year on year reflecting the strong trading in the comparative period and continued impact from the 2017 terror attacks," Merlin said.
