The #BOFaces series introduced you to the people making up BlueOrchard’s dedicated team, spread out across our international offices. This week, we had the pleasure of speaking with Anvar Mamarajabov, our Execution Team Lead in Risk, Legal & Compliance based in the Tbilisi office. We took this opportunity to get to know a bit more about Anvar, his hobbies, and motivations for joining BlueOrchard.

Anvar, why did you join BlueOrchard?

Impact investing has the power to bring positive change to developing countries and contribute to their economic and financial stability. This is very close to my heart. Joining the pioneer in impact investing was therefore an easy decision for me. I appreciate that BlueOrchard is taking a proactive approach to impact measurement by setting clear targets for the specific environmental, social, and governance impacts that their investments are expected to generate.

What is the first thing you do when you start your day?

I always start my day with a workout and some good music.

What motivates you?

I’m a very goal-oriented person, so seeing the objectives and plans that I have set for myself being achieved motivates me the most and encourages me to reach higher next time.

What do you most like to do to unwind?

Hanging out with my friends, hiking, and visiting new and unexplored places always help me relax.

What is your favourite movie? Why?

I have many favourites, but there are a few movies that I can always watch: The Pianist, Seven Pounds, and Schindler’s List. I’d say I prefer historical and adventure movies.

What is your passion besides BlueOrchard?

I love traveling, sports, and meeting new people.

What is your personal ambition for the year 2020?

This year my goal was to finally speak Georgian freely, which is pretty much accomplished.

What is the best advice you have ever been given?

Always have a warm heart and a cool mind. And always take it easy ????

Thank you, Anvar!
