Hargeaves Lansdown founder and LGIM's Morrissey handed honours

Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) head of personal investing Helena Morrissey and Hargreaves Lansdown co-founder Stephen Lansdown have been handed honours in the Queen's birthday awards list. 

Morrissey (pictured), who joined LGIM in January and was previously chief executive of Newton and chair of the Investment Management Association, has been made a dame in recognition for her efforts to improve diversity in the asset management industry.

She co-founded the 30% Club, a campaign to increase female representation on FTSE 100 boards, back in 2010. In the seven years since, the organisation said that the number of female blue chip board members has more than doubled from 12.5% to 27%.

Lansdown has been awarded the CBE for services in business and the community in Bristol. UK Financial Investments non-executive director Lucinda Riches was also made a CBE.

Lansdown’s honour sees him join his former colleague Peter Hargreaves and star income fund manager Neil Woodford in the CBE club.
