Equal pay for equivalent jobs

CDB-Group’s remuneration philosophy is based on the principle of equal pay for equivalent jobs. Our remuneration practices have been built on, and are driven by a gender-neutral approach. We deploy a series of controls ensuring that performance ratings, bonus and salary decisions are fairly and consistently applied during the annual compensation review process.

The representative data below indicates a level of parity of average salaries of men and women when assessed by each of the internal functional levels of the hierarchy at CDB in the UK.

Note that for level 1, the sample size (three employees) is not representative enough to draw conclusions.

Ratio: average salary women to average salary men
Ratio: average remuneration women to average remuneration men

I confirm that the data reported is accurate.
