Our CEO Dawn recently took part in an excellent investment roundtable hosted by Room 151. Other attendees included Liz Woodyard from the Avon Pension Fund and Fiona Miller, chief operating officer at Border to Coast Pensions Partnership. The roundtable discussion was moderated by Karen Shackleton, and examined the way in which Local Government Pension Schemes, where senior positions are frequently held by women, “are helping to drive a generational shift towards asset pooling.”
