Katie spent close to 20 years in the City of London in UK/European equity sales for Goldman Sachs and Citigroup. This experience gave her an understanding of how money flows through the economy and the world, and how it can have a positive (and negative) effect on individuals, society and the environment.

As a result, she is a keen follower of the evolving world of social enterprise and impact investing. She’s particularly interested in conscious consumerism, its role in ‘fast fashion’, and the impact it can have on supply chains. Katie has an MA in General Arts from Edinburgh University and is an Ambassador for Leaders’ Quest.
