Pensions - Articles - PLSA partner with Northern Trust Asset Management


The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced Northern Trust Asset Management as the headline partner in the Association’s diversity initiative, Breaking the Mirror Image. The initiative aims to encourage greater diversity on trustee boards and across the pensions industry as a whole.

 The Association announced the initiative in March 2017 with the release of a collection of essays, Breaking the mirror image: harnessing talent through diversity for better pensions. Authors included Lesley Titcomb, Chief Executive, The Pensions Regulator; Jayne-Anne Gadhia CBE, CEO Virgin Money and HMT Women In Finance Champion; Dame Helena Morrissey CBE, Chair Of The Investment Association and The Diversity Project and Helen Dean, CEO, NEST.

 Over the next year the Association and Northern Trust Asset Management will work on a programme of events and training. This will include the Diverse Leadership Training Programme, and a one day diversity conference.

 Julian Mund, Acting Chief Executive, Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, said: “Following on from the Association’s highly successful Investment Conference 2017, Diverse investments, diverse perspectives - the next step was to find the best possible headline partner. Northern Trust Asset Management is clearly an excellent choice as the commitment the company has put into improving diversity levels on a consistent basis is very impressive. We look forward to working with Northern Trust Asset Management over the next year to improve diversity in the pensions industry.”

 Wayne Bowers, CIO and CEO for Northern Trust Asset Management in Europe, Middle East Africa and Asia-Pacific, and chair of the Northern Trust Asset Management Diversity & Inclusion Council said: “We are delighted to be the headline partner of the PLSA’s diversity initiative. The initiative fits in very well with our ongoing commitment to ensuring diversity across the industry. At Northern Trust Asset Management, we believe that fostering and supporting a globally diverse and inclusive workforce is vital. A diversified workforce is one of the strongest assets an organisation can have; and we look forward to working with the PLSA to help improve diversity in the pensions industry.”
