We are proud to announce that earlier this month Allegro was awarded the Australian Investment Council 2019 Award for Leadership in Diversity & Inclusion. The Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion Award recognises those private capital investment firms whose diverse range of people within their organisation includes a wide range of backgrounds that encompasses different skills, talents and perspectives. It also recognises those firms who celebrate inclusive workplace environments that promote individual differences, embrace team strengths and provide initiatives and opportunities for all team members to fulfil their potential.

Allegro are proud to accept this award, which recognises how we, as a firm, celebrate diversity and inclusion in our workplace. We see the positive impact that such a diverse and inclusive culture has had on our own decision making, relationships, operations, financial performance and the experiences with our stakeholders. We value inclusiveness and diversity as we continue to strive to building better businesses, contribute to job creation and drive future growth. These are key values which reside not only within Allegro’s ethos, but also in how we approach investment opportunities, navigate rebuilding great businesses and developing specialised talent through transformational capital.

We thank the Australian Investment Council for this award and congratulate the other outstanding firms across the private capital sector.
