CHIEF SUSTAINABLE FINANCE INSTIGATOR
My vision is for financiers to empower industries and the economy towards sustainable development. I am the Head of Sustainable Finance in the Asia Pacific for an international financial institution operating in over 40 countries. My main responsibilities are: 1) the origination and structuring of 'green', 'social' and 'sustainability' bonds, loans and other financial instruments, 2) advisory on sustainability ratings, and 3) supporting the integration of sustainability internally into product, sector and country teams' activities.
I contribute on a number of expert sustainability and finance committees in the region, and reside in Singapore. Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry (MBioch) was my degree at University of Oxford (excellent foundation for finance and sustainability, nonetheless!), and I’ve lived, worked and traveled in over 60 countries (ok, that did give me a LOT of perspectives). In my spare time I play piano and ukulele for relaxation, act like kids with my fiancé, sing with my Amazon parrot Morrocho, meditate on water, and delve into nature.
