At Aegon Asset Management she will engage internally on inclusion and diversity issues as well as advocating for change externally.
Based in the UK, she will hold global responsibility for inclusion and diversity across Aegon Asset Management.
Jane Daniel, global chief risk & compliance officer, 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.”
