He comments: "I strongly believe in the importance of cultivating a highly inclusive company culture that embraces diversity in all its forms. I want to ensure that all of our current and future LGBT+ colleagues can experience an inclusive and collaborative workplace at First Sentier Investors and across the wider asset management sector. As an ally, I believe I have a very important role to play in driving change and positive action across our industry. By doing so, I hope that we can better reach those talented people with diverse backgrounds and experiences who may have never considered a career in Asset Management or Financial Services more broadly."
