In this week's Investment Influencers video interview, profiling the most respected individuals who select funds, decide ratings or otherwise influence the allocation of investor fund flows, we chat to Justin Onuekwusi of LGIM.
As a fund manager within the multi-asset funds team at Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), Onuekwusi leads on the management of its retail and risk-profiled multi-asset funds.
Prior to joining LGIM in August 2013, he was a fund manager with Aviva Investors' multi-asset team, combining both strategic and dynamic asset allocation with manager selection in the construction of multi-asset portfolios.
During this period, Onuekwusi was lead fund manager on a range of risk-targeting multi-asset funds and co-lead fund manager on a number of unit-linked life and pension funds, as well as manager of manager offerings.
He previously worked as a fund research analyst at Merrill Lynch and an investment consultant for Aon Consulting.
The Investment Influencers series, which has most recently featured Jason Broomer of Square Mile Investment Consulting & Research, Genevra Banszky von Ambroz of Smith & Williamson and Pankaj Shah of FundQuest Advisor, offers insights into how key players in the asset management sector see the world of investing and expect to deal with such challenges as greater market volatility, increased regulation and a growing trend towards short-termism.
