We do this by placing enormous trust in our people – a diverse, talented and creative team – who each take responsibility for their part in making Marshall Wace the rigorous, disciplined and innovative company it is.
Integrity is fundamental to how we operate. It underpins how we treat our clients, our people, our investments and our communities.

We are committed to social responsibility
Individually and collectively, we look for opportunities to contribute to society through charitable and support initiatives. We wish to set ourselves ambitious, measurable and data driven corporate responsibility targets.
COVID-19 Humanitarian Response
COVID-19 continues to impact all levels of our society, economy and institutions. We at Marshall Wace have always considered the support of the wider community as integral to our culture and this emergency has only increased this desire to help.
Mealforce began with the opening of Marshall Wace’s kitchen to cook 1,000 meals a day for the staff at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital (CWH). Within a short space of time it became apparent that the need was much greater and we set about expanding our capacity to solve this problem. During the lockdown periods, Mealforce provided over 40,000 meals per day, 7 days a week for NHS workers in hospitals across the country.
Similarly, in New York, we collaborated with the local community to provide hot meals for emergency workers at both Elmhurst Hospital in Queens and the Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan.
Our PPE initiative, Mail Force, was created by a consortium of Marshall Wace, the Daily Mail and Salesforce. It grew from an idea to buy an airfreight load of masks from China into a charity with the goal of tackling the urgent shortage of PPE in the UK.
Our clients’ returns should not come at the expense of people, the planet or our principles. We set ourselves ambitious, measurable, data driven corporate responsibility targets, and work towards them with our characteristic rigour.
Marshall Wace not only complies with international standards of governance and behaviour such as the UN supported Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), but also aims to be industry leading in our corporate responsibility efforts.
These beliefs from a core part of our daily practice; the global Marshall Wace community wants to be part of a culture that inherently respects and improves society and the planet.
