Kate Jones

I grew up in the Midlands, went to state school and had no obvious connections to financial services or indeed London. After securing an internship, and then Graduate role at Prudential M&G, I became a Fixed Income Fund Manager before moving on to hold senior roles at Barclays Global Investors (BGI), BlackRock and Schroders. I am particularly proud of my time at BGI where I was instrumental in building their market leading liability driven investing (LDI) business.

In 2014, I embarked on a portfolio career, and I am now thrilled to sit on the Board of the Pension Protection Fund, have a successful Executive Coaching practice with a focus on female leaders in the financial sector and I am regularly called upon to consult to senior leaders in the asset management industry – all whilst balancing life with two young daughters (to whom I never apologise for going to work).
