Anne Keys

Joint Managing Partner
Funds & Investment Management

Anne leads The Panel’s executive search in the Funds and Investment Management sector and is uniquely placed to partner with firms in hiring executives, board members and independent non-executive directors.  

Anne works with a large number of the investment firms establishing a presence in Ireland following the Brexit vote and has had great success sourcing Country Heads/CEOs, PCF and DP roles for her clients.  

Anne’s key differentiator is her extensive network developed over 23 years in recruitment and her technical knowledge of the roles she recruits for, in the funds and investment management space.  She provides consultancy advice on the talent landscape, talent availability and is hugely knowledgeable on the sourcing requirements driven by the CBI under CP86.  

Anne was instrumental in the set up and launch of  100 Women in Finance in Ireland and is Co-Vice Chair of the steering committee in Dublin. She is driving 100WF workshops for their executive femalemembers, advising them on how to launch their independent non-executive director careers.  

Anne has been invited to speak at key industry conferences in Dublin, London and Amsterdam on “CP86 Dear Chair – Getting the plan right”, “The talent landscape in Investment Management sector in Ireland”, “ The War for Talent”, “ The benefits of an international board” and “The benefits of a diverse board”.

She also supports basis.point the Irish Fund industry’s initiative to come together to help make a difference to those in need.

Fun fact: In her free time, she likes to play the occasional round of golf, run and enjoys her new hobby, winter sea swimming!
