Anna Strillacci

Director, Business and Program Development

As a multilingual Italian (now also British), brought up and educated in Luxembourg, France, the US and the UK, I consider myself a citizen of the world.  In 2002 I started my career in investment banking in London and New York before taking a 5 years career break.

I very much enjoyed and missed the fast pace and the travelling that came with the job and that is why in 2015 I ‘restarted’ my career through a Returnship program and decided to join the asset management industry.  I am specialised in Fixed Income and Distribution and very much enjoy the dynamic interactions and diversity of thought that I am confronted with daily in our ever changing industry.

Having gone through a career break and experiencing the barriers of re-joining the industry as a mid-level career female, my passion is to empower women who want to restart their careers, to become whatever they set their minds to.  Aside from chauffeuring around my two boys to football games multiple times a week with my husband, I am the co-chair of the Diversity Project’s Returners workstream.
