Her professional experience covers the entire investment management value chain from a legal, operational and regulatory perspective.

Her business experience over the last 14 years covers areas such as structuring of investment funds, legal & compliance, assisting clients regarding corporate structuring or other areas of laws intertwined with the fund industry.
