In Conversation With: Michelle Scrimgeour, CEO, LGIM

Episode 83,   Dec 11, 2019, 11:17 AM

In this special episode, Michelle Scrimgeour reflects on her career through asset management and her first five months as CEO of Legal & General Investment Management. From her time at Blackrock, M&G, Columbia Threadneedle and now LGIM, it’s clear that the City has not just become more international but also more inclusive “Culture is critical”, she says. “Joining LGIM was a different role again and I wanted to join somewhere with a strong culture and that I could quickly feel a part of in a natural way.”
Talking with Sarah Aitken, Head of Distribution, they discuss key megatrends that face asset managers from ESG, “no longer a nice-to-have”, to the shifting technological and regulatory landscapes. As she looks ahead, creating a resilient business comes down its purpose, “we’ve got to stay true to our core. The purpose of an organisation becomes hypercritical when the world is changing around you.”
