Aegon Asset Management appoints Head of Inclusion & Diversity

Global asset manager Aegon Asset Management has appointed Lindsay Hudson as Head of Inclusion & Diversity. In a new role for the business, Hudson 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, Hudson will report to Jane Daniel Global Chief Risk & Compliance Officer & I&D Ambassador at Aegon AM. Hudson’s appointment will also see her become a member of the company’s Senior Management Group, working closely with Aegon AM’s Management Board.

Hudson joins Aegon AM from Invesco where she was EMEA Head of Diversity & Inclusion since 2018, establishing the company’s extensive I&D programme. Previously, she worked as EMEA Operations Governance Manager at Invesco from 2015. Hudson also worked at discretionary management business Courtiers Investment Services for ten 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.

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

Daniel says: “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 organisation. 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.”
