CHICAGO, June 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Legal & General Investment Management America, Inc. ("LGIMA"), a registered investment advisor with over $120 billion in assets under management, has announced that it will join with Her Majesty's Consul General in Chicago, Stephen Bridges LVO, to host an executive luncheon in honor of The Rt Hon Lord Mayor of the City of London, The Lord Mountevans, at LGIMA's headquarters in the downtown Chicago on July 1.
The Lord Mayor is a dedicated ambassador for, and the primary representative of, the UK financial services industry. His visit highlights the deepening ties between Chicago's and London's financial services communities, as well as Chicago's continuing importance as global financial center. The Lord Mayor will also offer his views on the post-EU referendum landscape, the current status of financial regulatory reform, and opportunities and challenges for asset managers conducting business in London, as well as the broader United Kingdom.
"Financial services is the lifeblood of so many of the world's most vibrant economies," said the Lord Mayor. "It is wonderful to see just how far Chicago has come as a financial centre on the global stage. I am delighted to visit Chicago and proud to point to LGIMA as a shining beacon of this city's growth and success."
"We are honored to welcome the Lord Mayor to the great city of Chicago and LGIMA's headquarters," said Moore. "The timing of his visit is particularly relevant and poignant, given that LGIMA is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year. Over the past decade, LGIMA has experienced significant growth and strategic expansion due, in large part, to our ability to leverage the strength, size, and reputation of our UK parent, Legal & General Investment Management. We are undoubtedly a stronger company thanks to our deep London roots."
Beyond reviewing why Legal & General, a FTSE 100 firm and a global leader in insurance, pensions and investments, chose Chicago as the US headquarters of its investment management arm, Moore will discuss LGIMA's leading position in fixed income, liability driven investment (LDI), and index strategies for the US market.
