Karen trained and qualified at haysmacintyre, and has since focused on our Financial Services sector working with hedge fund managers, corporate finance boutiques and private equity managers, particularly those entities regulated with the Financial Conduct Authority.
As well as acting as a principal on audit engagements, Karen has worked with a number of new start-up managers assisting with track record reporting and other procedures. She has built a good relationship with her clients and believes this is what enables her to act in the capacity of a business advisor and not just an audit principal. Keeping in touch and maintaining an interest in the business has allowed her to build these relationships and, given the relative size of the sector, it is always great to bump into clients at regular industry events such as the COO Summit and Emerging Manager Forums. Karen is a key contributor to the sector, arranging internal training and providing editorial content such as articles and insights.
Karen is a competitive hockey player and loves to travel and experience new countries when she is not visiting her home country, South Africa.
