Senior Associate – Fund Operations

I am white British, I grew up in South London, attended a state comprehensive in an under privileged area. I did not go to university.

I started my career at JPMorgan as a desk assistant aged 18, and then joined Payden & Rygel in 2002. I have progressed through the ranks and my current role is Senior Associate in Fund Operations, responsible for the day-to-day operational management of our offshore funds. I organised the first Diversity event in our London office in 2023.

I have volunteered at Student Pride events and Save the Children charity shop.

I am a single parent female breadwinner to three children, one of which is neurodiverse and has special educational needs.
