Jennie Austin  Director, Asset Owner Group Europe - FTSE Russell

After 18 years as a market participant supporting FTSE through its advisory committees, Jennie joined the organisation in 2009 to build their relationships with Asset Owners through the European region. She is now responsible for many of FTSE Russell’s largest asset owner relationships with special focus on Netherlands and Scandinavia. She has specialised over the last few years on Alternative Beta and Sustainability solutions and has worked closely with clients to support the build and implementation of bespoke index solutions in these areas. Jennie has 30 years’ experience working in the city. Having trained as an active fund manager and completed various Investment Analyst qualifications, she chose to focus on indexation, running funds globally in house for the British Telecom and Post Office schemes. For a period, she worked on the broking side of the business supporting index clients with specialist trading before moving back to an institutional base to establish the programme trading desk at BGI. She holds a BA Honours in European Business Administration and (the French equivalent) DESEM from the Ecole Superior de Commerce, Reims, France.
