In Conversation with Jane Welsh
Jane began her investment career in 1982 at London Business School where she marketed investment analysis tools. She moved to Russell in 1984 as their first full-time manager researcher before joining Watsons (now Willis Towers Watson) in 1992 to advise institutional investors on strategy, portfolio construction, manager selection and monitoring.
She headed the global equity research team and built a private markets advisory business. She was on the executive committee for the firm until leaving in February 2017.
Recent roles included oversight of the firm’s inclusion and diversity initiatives and leadership development programme. Jane is now self-employed and is a founder member of the Diversity Project.
