Aitkin joins the firm in September 2014 and will report to Mike Craston, global head of distribution.
Craston says: “There is considerable momentum behind LGIM’s continued business expansion, as we diversify our investment capabilities and services among institutional investors in our core UK market while growing our distribution across Europe and the Middle East. Sarah will take the lead on our distribution strategy for future growth and help underpin our commitment to building strong relationships with pension clients and consultants.”
Until 2013, Aitken was head of distribution at Insight Investment Management, where she was responsible for client relationships, business development and marketing. Prior to joining Insight in 2005, Aitken was a managing director at Merrill Lynch Investment Management, where she was head of institutional relationship management. She began her career as a UK equity analyst at Cazenove and later joined JP Morgan.
Aitken says: “I am pleased to be joining LGIM at a very exciting time in its development as it continues to grow and diversify its core UK market, while building upon its more recent successes in new markets across Europe and the Middle East.”
