Morgan to judge Diversity in Finance Awards

Nicky Morgan MP, chairman of the Treasury select committee, will help judge Financial Adviser's first ever Diversity in Finance Awards.

Ms Morgan will be joined on the judging panel by Ruth Hunt, chief executive of UK-based lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights charity Stonewall, Adam Thorpe, who leads the recruitment team within the financial services division of Randstad, Chris Cummings, chief executive of the Investment Association, and former pensions minster Baroness Ros Altmann.

Last year the MP said the Treasury select committee would further scrutinise appointments at financial services firms to ensure the industry becomes more equally represented.

Financial Adviser'Diversity in Finance Awards will look at individuals who have demonstrated their support for minority groups.
