Legal & General Investment Management

investment management recruitment


LGIM is the investment management arm of Legal & General Group, a FTSE 100 company with a heritage dating back to 1836. The Investment Management business is one of Europe’s largest asset managers, offering investment solutions to a broad range of clients globally.

psd’s specialist investment management recruitment team, lead by Geoff Eaton, began working with LGIM in 2015. Over the past 5 years the organisation has invested significantly in technology and business change projects to underpin their development and growth whilst having to react to an ever-changing regulatory environment. We have been instrumental in staffing many of these projects and have worked closely with LGIM’s technology, data and business change teams to build an unrivalled understanding of their requirements.

During this time psd has placed over 30 people with the organisation, providing skills in Programme/Project Management, Business / Data Analysis, Architecture, Testing and Application Development. These individuals have combined both subject matter expertise across a range of specific domains in the Investment Management business together with knowledge of a number of vendor technologies.
