Please tell us about your career before InfraRed

Prior to InfraRed, I worked at Alpha African Advisory (formerly Travant Capital Partners) a boutique investment advisory firm focused on investments in the African market. At Alpha African, I worked across various sectors including infrastructure, oil and gas and real estate.

Which aspects appealed to you about our organisation?

InfraRed is an industry leader with a global footprint specifically focused on direct investments in Infrastructure and Real Estate.  I recognised that InfraRed would provide plenty of opportunities to learn across a variety of markets but would also give me the chance to become a sector specialist. It hasn’t disappointed so far!

What do you enjoy most about working here?

The people – I work with smart, forward-thinking, highly analytical people who are passionate about what they do and are willing to teach. The company also organises a lot of social activities, including the annual dodgeball event, which is a great chance to get to know people both within the business as well as our business partners.

What advice would you give to others considering a role here?

As an Analyst you need to have a good understanding of the fundamentals of modelling, and genuine passion to learn about the industry, but don’t take yourself too seriously! The team enjoys working and socialising with one another.

Fast facts about you

I have a Grade 8 LAMDA qualification in acting, I’m passionate about African art and literature and I love to cook.
