Corley will join the board in September, and, subject to shareholder approval, succeed Michael Dobson as chair after the company’s AGM in April 2022. She will also be a member of the nominations committee.
Corley is a former CEO of Allianz Global Investors, and previously held senior roles at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers and Coopers & Lybrand.
She is currently a non-executive director at Pearson, BAE Systems and Morgan Stanley. She is also chair of the Impact Investing Institute.
Michael Dobson, chair of Schroders, said: “It has been an honour to serve as chairman and see Schroders’ continued progress over the past five years. I look forward to working with Elizabeth over the next eight months and wish her every success for the future.”
