Andrien Meyers is a Councilman in the City of London Corporation as well as a Head of Pensions Investments at the London Borough of Sutton and Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. He is a Non Executive Director of Resonance Limited as well as a strategic business advisor to bfinance. Our conversation starts with his upbringing in India, and moves through his move to the UK, his early career in accounting and how he was attracted in to the investment area. We talk about what it means to be a steward of capital in the public fund area. We talk through his investment beliefs, such as what responsible investing means to him, his conviction in asset management and the importance of accurate measurement and reporting. Passionate about financial literacy, Andrien describes the after school program that he has helped create that focuses on “fusion skills” such as Resume Writing, Interview skills and Presentation Skils. We move then to speak about his work on the Anti-Racism Taskforce for the City of London, of which Andrien is a member and discuss how delicate and sometimes nuanced actions take have to be, especially in a place as laced with history and tradition as the City of London.
