What is the most challenging aspect of your role?
For me it is probably time management. There is always something to do or a company to meet, and ultimately there aren’t enough hours in the day. Luckily, I have a great team around me.
What is keeping you up at night?
It is usually our founders, and sometimes literally! We have a very open and approachable relationship whereby they can WhatsApp or contact me any time, day or night. I spend a lot of time thinking about how we can better support our founders, and also how their businesses challenges will evolve as they grow.

What makes your firm stand out?
Aside from our strong historical returns, we have a unique thesis in backing companies with emerging‐market footprints, which leads to greater capital efficiency, access to larger markets and less competition for top talent.
What is the one thing you want advisers/investors to know about your firm?
What is the best piece of advice you've taken?
Work with great people. It’s something that I have really taken onboard, and have really seen it make an impact beyond anything else.
What non-fiction book would you recommend?
‘What It Takes: Lessons in the Pursuit in Excellence’ by Stephen Schwarzman. It’s the story of how Blackstone was founded and it has really inspired me on my own journey.
