Annie brings more than 25 years’ experience across various sectors encompassing investment banking, not-for-profit and start-ups.

In 2014 she co-launched Bala Sport, a social enterprise encouraging the use of ethically produced, fairtrade sports balls.

As investment managers, John and Annie will be responsible for maintaining existing relationships with social enterprises and charities that have benefitted from financial support from SIS.

Selassi comes to SIS from Stewart Investors where she has spent nearly seven years as a relationship associate and previously as a data analyst.

She also holds a postgraduate certificate in Sustainable Business from the University of Cambridge.

As data and insights manager, Selassi will support SIS’s measurement and evaluation of the ongoing impact of its investments and funding.

Commenting on the appointments, Alastair Davis, CEO of SIS, said: “Our growing headcount is testament to the increasingly prominent role of responsible finance in the Scottish economy.

“We are pleased to welcome three new managers to the team who will support our ambitious plans to build an impact economy for Scotland.

“John, Annie and Selassi all come from diverse backgrounds in finance and the third sector, bringing a variety of experience and valuable knowledge to SIS.

“It is great to see such talented individuals choosing to use their skillsets to deliver greater impact for people and planet.”
