responsAbility Social Investments AG | Researcher | Zurich ZH Switzerland
I do research on the social performance of our microfinance, SME and fairtrade investment portfolio of USD 850 million.
The developing world - stage of the daily struggle of the active poor. In particular the sunbaked cerrado of Brazil and the steaming highlands of Sumatra, Indonesia.
I want small entrepreneurs in developing countries to have access to long-term risk capital, so they can realize their ideas, grow their businesses, create formal jobs and thus have a lasting developmental impact on their local community.
After reading economics in Fribourg, Switzerland, and Madrid, Spain, I worked in a human rights NGO called Peacebrigades International. Next, I did a postgraduate MSc programme in economic development at University of Glasgow, Scotland. I began my professional career as a quantitative analyst with a bank and went on to become the responsible analyst for SMEs at Credit Suisse Economic Research. Now, I work as a researcher at responsAbility Social Investments AG.
