Where are you working and in what capacity?
I work as a Director at Geneva Management Group based in Geneva, Switzerland. My main focus is serving a portfolio of high net worth clients who are entrepreneurs, business leaders and wealthy families. I also play a key role in the implementation of international tax regulations such as the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and the OECD Common Reporting Standard (CRS) within our business.
What is your background?
I was born and completed high school in Ukraine, and was also raised in Canada, where I finished my undergraduate studies in Commerce & Finance at the University of Toronto. Following several years of work experience, I did the MILE programme and also studied towards the Chartered Financial Analyst designation through the CFA Institute. To date, I have worked in Toronto, Johannesburg and Cape Town (including projects in Africa), Zurich and currently, Geneva.
Over the last 15 years I have specialised in financial services and also focused on key regulatory affairs relevant to the sector.
