Peter Harrison


I joined Schroders in 2013 and I am the Group Chief Executive, based in London. I currently Chair the Investment Association, and sit on The Takeover Panel and on the advisory boards of the Diversity Project, CFA and CityUK. 
I’ve worked in fund management all my career, in all types of firms: from JP Morgan and Deutsche to Newton, and start-up RWC. 

I believe strongly that our industry will benefit significantly from greater diversity of thought. I am proud that Schroders was one of the very first companies to publish its gender pay gap, sign the Women in Finance Charter and the first to become an active member of OUTstanding.

I was delighted to be nominated as a leading executive LGBT ally: being nominated for the 2017 Women in Finance Awards came as a shock!
