Anne Mette de Place Filippini

A passionate student of business, Anne Mette began her career in strategy consulting in England in 1992. Over almost a decade, she earned valuable business experience from an inside vantage point by working with senior management on business strategy across various industries. Anne Mette moved to Canada in 1994 and then in 2000 left consulting to join the investment management industry to practice value investing the Warren Buffett way. In 2008, she joined Burgundy to launch an emerging markets equity portfolio and build an investment team to support it.

Anne Mette believes excellent educational institutions are the cornerstone of Toronto’s long-term success and enjoys volunteering her time in this area. In 2006, she received the Arbor Award from the University of Toronto for outstanding volunteer service.
