Legal & General Archives - Panmure Gordon
CEO podcast series. We hosted Sir Nigel Wilson, CEO of L&G, discussing a range of topics, including his desire to play football for Newcastle Utd. and a return to teaching at University when he retires from the Group. We also explored the need to counter the de-equitisation of the UK markets and the need for scale-up capital for SMEs, something which Legal & General Capital is actively involved with. Whilst Sir Nigel did not wear the No. 9 shirt at St James’ Park, he made a major impact on British businesses and took L&G to new heights. He will leave the business in January 2024 in good shape for his recently announced successor, who must ensure the core business continues to run smoothly and internationalise the operations further. To this end the new CEO has a strong and deep bench around him. Along with returning to teaching, Sir Nigel flagged his desire to be back at the helm of another major corporate institution in due course.
