This week, we had the pleasure of speaking with Lisa Sherk, Head of Investment Analytics, based in Amsterdam. Continue reading if you want to find out why she decided to join BlueOrchard, what she enjoys most about working at BlueOrchard and what motivates her.

Why did you join BlueOrchard?

Before BlueOrchard, I worked for a bit more than a decade in emerging markets fixed income asset management. It was a great job in many ways, but I wanted my work to have a clearer development objective that addressed the challenges in the countries that we were investing in. So BlueOrchard was the perfect match – it is still asset management, still emerging markets, but with very clear development goals.

What do you enjoy most about working at BlueOrchard?

BlueOrchard has a knack for hiring really great people, who I am fortunate enough to work alongside. Working together with the investment team is what I have always liked the most – because it is such a great mix of smart, fun, interesting people from all over the world (they also keep me young).

What motivates you?

Seeing change and progress, and finding solutions to problems. When the work that we do helps and inspires others and builds momentum, it is a great motivation to continue working to address the many challenges – economic, social, environmental – that the world faces.

Thank you, Lisa.
