Investment Banking (Female) 2020

The investment banking benchmark contains a range of organizations that either are solely investment banks or have large business areas devoted to investment banking. This benchmark only includes Women employees. We use woman and man because most of our customers are using binary options.

    Benchmark status

We consider this an emerging benchmark: it has enough data available for us to use bootstrapping to create a representative sample. As the sample grows in size, some scores may slightly change. Our research has shown that our bootstrapped scores are consistent with our standard benchmarks. Read more about the methodology.
