Standard Life Aberdeen : Adviser Platform CEO appointed to independent taskforce

04/23/2021 | 05:44am EDT
  • Noel Butwell appointed to an independent taskforce commissioned by Government and led by City of London Corporation
  • Seeks to improve progression in financial and professional services


Standard Life Aberdeen today announces the appointment of Noel Butwell, its CEO of Adviser Platforms, to the City of London Corporation (CoLC) independent taskforce to boost socio-economic diversity at senior levels in UK Financial and Professional services (FPS).

Commissioned by HM Treasury and Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy*, the taskforce is the first of its kind with a mission to challenge the lack of career progression for those coming from non-professional backgrounds and to explore the intersections with other protected characteristics, including gender and race.

Over 80 organisations across a range of sub sectors and regions are involved in the taskforce by shaping its outputs and working towards greater socio-economic diversity.

Taskforce Chair and Policy Chair at the City of London Corporation, Catherine McGuinness, said:

'This is a unique opportunity to redress how the financial and professional services sector supports talent from diverse backgrounds, providing equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of their socio-economic status to get ahead. Through a sustained commitment, the taskforce will make a real difference in creating meaningful and lasting change.'


Noel Butwell, CEO Adviser Platforms, said:
'I'm delighted to have this opportunity to work with colleagues across the industry to address the issue of diversity. There have definitely been great improvements in the financial services industry, including within Standard Life Aberdeen, but we need to continue with this focus to make further improvements.

Standard Life Aberdeen have some great initiatives and practices underway to support colleagues and society as a whole. These include our gender, ethnicity and social inclusion action plans, our charitable partnerships, a market leading UK parental leave policy, and crucially, I'm surrounded by colleagues who are passionate about driving change.

There's more to do though, and I'm looking forward to not only sharing our progress with the Taskforce, but also learning from other members about what's working in other companies. I want to understand what action we can take to do better and, together, create long lasting change that will be beneficial across the industry.'


The taskforce will run from May 2021-November 2022. For more information, please visit www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/whogetsahead
