After working for her father’s family office while also teaching at her alma mater, the University of Alexandria, after coming top of her class in Business Administration with a specialism in Finance, Dr. Rania Ahmed Azmi was noticed by organisations including the International Finance Corporation, which certified her to train small and medium-sized businesses on finance and investment, and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization. From here, she followed in the footsteps of Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair in the IV Leadership Programme, which took her all over the world. She received her PhD in Financial Mathematics and she was featured in the 40 under 40 asset owners in the aiCIO magazine in 2013. She was also a keynote speaker at the CERN laboratories pension risk and investment summit last year. When not advising on investment, Azmi is a keen activist for women’s position in business, politics, and society, where she has spoken for the World Bank in gender and economics and soon after was awarded the Google Prize for “Most Interesting and Creative Work” and was designated a Woman of Influence globally by the Women Speakers Association.
