Baroness Helena Morrissey DBE

Helena has worked in financial services for over three decades, originally as a fixed income portfolio manager. She was CEO of Newton Investment Management for 15 years, Chair of the Investment Association from 2014-17 and became Chair of FTSE250 firm AJ Bell in 2021. She has been appointed Chair of Fidelis, an innovative specialist insurance company that declines to insure business that does not meet certain ESG standards. Helena is a Fellow (Governor) at Eton College, where she also chairs the Endowment Committee.

Helena is well known for her work on inclusion and diversity. In 2010, she founded the 30% Club, a campaign for better gender-balanced boards. Since then, the representation of women on FTSE350 boards has risen from less than 10% to almost 40%.  There are now twenty 30% Clubs throughout the world. Helena chairs the Diversity Project, aimed at improving diversity across all dimensions in the investment industry.

Helena entered the House of Lords in September 2020 and was appointed a Dame in 2017 for her work on improving diversity in financial services. She was named one of the 25 most influential City figures over the past quarter of a century by Financial News (2022).

Helena has written two books: A Good Time to be a Girl (William Collins, 2018) and Style and Substance, a guide for women who want to win at work (Little, Brown Books, 2021). She is married with nine children aged from 13 to 31 and has three grandchildren.

“Superwoman” Helena Morrissey Joins Kruger Cowne

Thank you so much for speaking so brilliantly – you absolutely lit up the stage! It was a privilege for us to have you there.

Harper’s Bazaar

"Helena's stage presence encapsulated our audience, whilst engaging them with her story, and making them feel that she was one of them. Empowering, real, and a great story teller. Women in Data were thrilled to have Helena contribute at our event on the empowerment stage and would not hesitate to invite her back again to hear more."

Women in Data UK

"The feedback was fantastic as mentioned and we thought you set a very balanced, constructive and yet encouraging tone during your speech and that was very helpful for both women and men in the discussion as well as across different levels within the firm."


Helena is an inspirational speaker. She delivers her message with clarity and passion in a way that really resonates. Even when discussing complex and challenging issues, her story telling skills and practical advice make it accessible and engaging.

When she spoke before an internal EY audience of over 1000 people she held the room in the palm of her hand. Her open and honest style had an impact on the crowd that was palpable on the day and the feedback from the audience was overwhelmingly positive.

EY Ireland

WINN UK had the privilege of welcoming Dame Helena Morrissey as our keynote speaker for the WINN UK annual event 2019 yesterday (20 November).

Helena spoke passionately on the topic of “Why finance needs more women”. A wide audience of women and men from Natixis London Branch and other UK affiliates, as well as external guests, were inspired by the event. We look forward to continuing the positive and effective work WiNN does into 2020 and beyond.
