Biography of Dame Helena Morrissey

Helena is well known in the City, particularly for her work on gender equality. She was CEO of Newton Investment Management for fifteen years and has recently joined Legal and General Investment Management, leading a new drive to engage the nation to invest more.

In 2010, Helena founded the 30% Club, a business-led campaign to improve gender balance in the boardroom. The proportion of female directors on UK listed company boards has since more than doubled and there are now ten 30% Clubs throughout the world. Helena chairs the Diversity Project, a cross-business initiative aimed at improving diversity across all dimensions within the UK investment and savings profession.
