TELL ME A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND YOUR BACKGROUND

I am of German, Spanish and Catalan origin and have lived in the UK for the last 15 years. Most recently I worked for GLG, a learning platform for investment management firms for 3.5 years where I built the Spain private equity team from scratch. Before that I worked at ASI for 2.5 years  in international development which took me to DR Congo and Nigeria.

WHAT TYPES OF CAUSES ARE YOU MOST ATTRACTED TO?

I am passionate about gender equality and women’s economic empowerment both here in Europe and globally.
