Lord Abbett is a proud supporter of the Movember Foundation. "Our lasting relationship with Movember continues to be a rewarding part of our firm’s commitment to our mission of securing a sustainable future for our clients, our people, and our world," shares Doug Sieg, CEO & Managing Partner.

Since 2015, Lord Abbett has committed to help change the face of men’s health by raising over $800,000, making the firm one of the top fundraisers in the U.S. Lord Abbett’s passionate support for those facing the struggles of mental health and the hardship that cancer can cause individuals and their families continues to set an impressive example.

Team Lord Abbett Captain, Louisa Boliver shares her Movember motivation: "I have been a Mo Sister for the last 5 years, and this year, I am very proud to be the captain of Team Lord Abbett. Prioritizing and talking about mental health is incredibly important to me. Asking for help isn’t easy - and too often men “tough it out,” keep their feelings to themselves, and struggle in silence. Across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day. So, this Movember, I’ll be running 60 miles for the 60 men we lose each hour every day.

I partner with Movember so that we can break down the stigma that men need to always be strong and tough. I partner with Movember to raise funds for projects that help men cope and live happier, healthier, longer lives, and so that we can all have the confidence and tools to have conversations with the men in our lives who might be struggling. I partner with Movember so that the men who I love can remain in my life for as long as possible."

Lord Abbett is committed to doing mo' to change the face of men’s health. Last year, the team raised more than $246,000 for Movember. The firm comes together to support Movember by hosting Mo challenges throughout November to get employees excited about fundraising. Challenges include meaningful giveaways (like participating in the iconic bell ringing ceremony at Nasdaq) for meeting fundraising milestones. Lord Abbett concludes its month-long fundraising efforts with an annual Best Mo Contest, where participants share their stories about why fundraising for Movember is so important to them.

We're grateful to the firm’s employees who remain deeply committed to fundraising, generating awareness, and supporting Movember in a variety of ways — knowing that their efforts have a positive impact.
