Jim Fitzpatrick Recognized as Leader in Diversity, Influential LGBT Ally

LGBT Great Launches 50For50 Pride Campaign

NICSA is delighted to announce that President and CEO Jim Fitzpatrick is featured in LGBT Great’s #50For50 Executives campaign. The campaign showcases 50 executive leaders across the asset management industry pioneering a diverse and inclusive environment. Jim is a proud ally of the LGBT community and has been recognized for his leadership in the launch of the Diversity Project North America. NICSA launched the Diversity Project in the fourth quarter of 2018 and the initiative is growing steadily among a broad range of firms within the industry. With hopes of deepening the D&I lens within the global asset management industry, we are pleased to see our industry leaders stand together in support of the LGBT+ community not just for #Pride but all year round. 

About #50For50 Executives

LGBT Great’s #50for50 Executives campaign is part of Project 1000, which is a five-year drive to shine a light on 1000 LGBT+ and allies within the investment and savings industry. The purpose of the campaign is to showcase 50 executive leaders across our industry and to recognize the 50 years since the Stonewall movement began. The 50 executives represent a broad range of firms (at C-Suite and executive level) across the USA, EMEA and APAC. 

About the Diversity Project North America

The mission of the Diversity Project North America is to promote a diverse and inclusive asset management industry with the right talent to deliver the best possible results for our clients, reflect the society we serve, and ensure long-term business sustainability. We aim to achieve diversity across all dimensions through collaborative leadership from executive business leaders pooling resources from industry participants around challenges we all face.

The Project spans the entire range of the industry: asset managers, fund complexes, asset servicers, broker dealers, asset owners and professional service firms. We share best practices, identify gaps in our industry, and initiate action to help solve or improve those inadequacies.
