Aegon Asset Management appoints Head of Inclusion & Diversity

We have appointed Lindsay Hudson to a new role as Head of Inclusion & Diversity. Lindsay will engage internally on I&D issues, and advocate for change externally.

 

Based in the UK, with global responsibility for inclusion and diversity across Aegon AM, Lindsay will report to Jane Daniel, our Global Chief Risk & Compliance Officer and the firm’s I&D Ambassador. Lindsay’s appointment will also see her become a member of the company’s Senior Management Group, working closely with Aegon AM’s Management Board.

 

Lindsay joins us from Invesco, where she was EMEA Head of Diversity & Inclusion since 2018, establishing the company’s extensive I&D program. Previously, she worked as EMEA Operations Governance Manager at Invesco from 2015. Lindsay also worked at discretionary management business Courtiers Investment Services for 10 years as Head of Acquisitions and latterly Head of Sales & Operations. She has also held various roles during her 10 years at Perpetual Unit Trust Management, including involvement in the integration of the Perpetual and Invesco businesses.

 

Lindsay is a steering committee member of The Diversity Project, a cross-company initiative which promotes diversity in the investment industry and is an active participant in the Investment Association and the Women In Finance Charter.

 

Commenting on the appointment, Jane Daniel said: “We are committed to embracing inclusion and diversity and affecting positive, enduring change. Becoming more inclusive and diverse is not only a key objective for our business but a duty to the societies in which we live and work.

 

“By establishing this new role, we ensure dedicated resource and co-ordination for our inclusion and diversity agenda, both internally and externally, and underscore the importance of inclusion and diversity to our organization. Ensuring we create a strategic and consistent approach to all inclusion and diversity initiatives will accelerate our efforts and also serve to boost and expand on the significant work of our inclusion and diversity teams to date. I would like to congratulate Lindsay on her appointment, and warmly welcome her to Aegon Asset Management.”
