LONDON, July 1 (Reuters) - Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), the fund arm of insurer Legal & General , said on Tuesday it had appointed Sarah Aitken as head of its institutional business for Europe and the Middle East.
Aitken, who joins in September, was previously head of distribution at Insight Investment Management, where she was responsible for client relationships, business development and marketing, LGIM said in a statement.
Prior to that, she was head of institutional relationship management at Merrill Lynch Investment Management.
