13/09/2017 , News Team

Liontrust Asset Management has appointed Sophia Tickell as a non-executive director to its board, effective from 1 October 2017.

A founding partner of Meteos, a not for profit think tank and strategy company which assists companies, governments and investors to understand the trends shaping their operating environments, Ms Tickell is also a writer, facilitator and advocate.

Ms Tickell has over 15 years of experience working with asset managers and corporate executives, she has served in a wide range of positions including as an adviser to sustainable futures funds at Alliance Trust, an SRI advisory board member at Aviva and a trustee at Green Alliance.

In addition, Ms Tickell designed and collaboratively ran the PharmaFutures, EnergyFutures and BankingFutures dialogues, which were senior dialogues between fund managers, corporate executives, regulators and civil society.

Currently Ms Tickell is a member of the advisory committee of the Liontrust Sustainable Future Funds and an external adviser to the corporate responsibility committee of GlaxoSmithKline’s board.

Chairman of Liontrust, Adrian Collins, said Ms Tickell will “add vast knowledge and insight to the board through her work and involvement with ESG as it concerns asset management and sustainable investment”.

He continued: “This is a key area of focus and expansion for Liontrust following the completion of our acquisition of Alliance Trust Investments in April 2017 and given our belief in the growing importance of sustainability for consumers and investors.”
