People & Business: Children's trust

DONALD BRYDON, chairman and chief executive of AXA Investment managers, the second largest asset management group in the world, has been made chairman of the European Children's Trust.

The charity was originally set up in 1990 to help the children in orphanages in Romania, and has since expanded its activities to other parts of the former Communist bloc, including Albania and Ukraine.

Mr Brydon joined the Barclays group in 1977 and ended up as head of BZW Investment Management. He made the switch to the French insurance group AXA two years ago.
