Office: New York

Team: Investor Development Group

Maureen is head of the Americas Investor Development Group for Actis.  She and her team work with investors in Actis funds to keep them fully appraised of the progress and performance of their investments. Importantly, they work with potential investors about the opportunities that exist in sustainable infrastructure globally.

Maureen joined Actis from Morgan Stanley where she was a Managing Director and held a number of roles in the alternative investments division, ranging from client engagement, to sales team management and business management. She worked at K2 Advisors immediately prior to Morgan Stanley.

Maureen started her career as a research analyst at Drexel Burnham Lambert, working with institutional clients on identifying their balance sheet risk and then constructing risk mitigating hedging strategies. Hedging strategies evolved to also suggest opportunistic trading ideas from time to time.

Maureen received her undergraduate degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology, with a second emphasis in Economics at California State University at Chico. She obtained her Masters in Finance at Northwestern University in Chicago. Additionally, Maureen holds a Chartered Alternative Investment Analyst designation.

For me, Actis is the perfect place to combine the opportunity to generate attractive risk adjusted returns with transformational societal impact. It is exciting for me now to go back to these same markets I visited with a microfinance lens and see how the macrofinance investments Actis makes are positively impacting the countries, cities and communities in which we operate.
