Karin Cook

COO at Quilter

About

Bio: Karin was appointed to Quilter plc in January 2019 as the Chief Operating Officer and is responsible for technology, change, security, property, procurement, HR, marketing and corporate affairs. Karin has 30 years' experience in financial services, with her most recent experience being in Group Operations at Lloyds Banking Group. She has previously worked at HSBC, Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs in senior operations, technology and finance roles.

Karin is a passionate LGBT+ ally, and works to raise awareness and visibility of diversity and inclusion, breaking down barriers to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all colleagues. At Quilter plc, she is the LGBT+ executive sponsor and she has played a key role in helping the firm to begin this important journey. She has also featured twice in the Financial Times top 10 OUTstanding LGBT+ allies list and was named Stonewall LGBT+ Ally of the year in 2016. In 2019, she was recognised in LGBT Great's #50For50 initiative and she takes an active role in sharing her experience of being an LGBT+ ally to help inspire others.

Karin comments: "I'm really proud that Quilter is one of the first ten founding member firms of LGBT Great. Now, even more than ever, when it's easy for us to feel remote from one another, inclusion should be front and centre of any business agenda. I'm a passionate LGBT+ ally, and for me, a core part of this is about raising awareness and visibility of diversity and inclusion, breaking down barriers to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all colleagues. We at Quilter are proud to be part of LGBT Great and the 2020 Pride campaign."
