Born and raised in Kuwait by expatriate parents, I am very familiar with life as an expat. Apart from a few years in Scotland where I gained my BSc in Economics and Politics and my Masters in Finance at Strathclyde University, I have spent my years between the Middle East and Asia.Thailand was my home for 11 years, and I now live on the idyllic Waiheke Island in New Zealand where I enjoy life with my husband and two daughters.
My career in offshore financial advisory services began in April 2001. Working with UK listed Plc in Bangkok, the early years were exciting, challenging and provided a very steep learning curve. After working in the industry for 3 years, along with Ben Bennett and Trevor Keidan, I decided there was room in Asia for a company more dedicated to client servicing and to providing truly independent advice. Soon after, Infinity was born. The company has gone from strength to strength over the years, and we now have a loyal and hard working team that span our offices across 6 countries in Asia.
My main role is still to actively service my existing clients as well as to grow this client base with referrals and recommendations I receive as well as introductions. Many of my clients have worked with me now for over a decade and I dearly value my relationships with them. This job , if done correctly, allows you to forge a lasting bond with clients that continue even after the client has left the region – this is one of the richest rewards of my career as a financial adviser.
