About

Bio: Honor is responsible for LGIM's Retail Distribution team for EMEA. Honor joined LGIM in October 2014 from Blackrock (and its predecessor company Merrill Lynch) where she worked for nearly 15 years in London, Paris and New York. Roles included Equity Sales & Trading, Relationship Management within Global Markets and Investment Banking, Institutional Sales to Local Authority and Corporate Pension Funds and leading the team responsible for Blackrock's relationships with private banks, stockbrokers and fund of funds. Honor holds a BSc in Business Administration with French from University of Wales, Cardiff and Pantheon - Assas, Paris.

Honor believes that a strong team is one in which every person can feel and act 100% their true self. By being an ally and role model her aim is to do everything she can to drive behaviours, roles, actions and groups to make this happen within her team and company. She comments: "I have a number of friends and family in the LGBT+ community and have loved seeing them grow in confidence in their identity inside and out of work. We have a long way to go to reach our diversity goals and ambitions but... I love that we are well on our way on the journey."
