Growing up in Germany, studying in Ireland, moving to the UK, and travelling extensively, Anke has always engaged in numerous social impact, biodiversity and sustainable development initiatives. Early in her career, she took a sabbatical to support local community development in Bolivia and five years ago, with a young family, travelled across Asia. She has been a financial supporter across several cause areas, from homelessness to educational attainment for students growing up in disadvantaged areas. Most of her time currently is in setting up a Forest Charity to plant native trees in Ireland in order to increase biodiversity, CO2 drawdown, climate education and access to nature. Anke is the Co-founding partner of Attestor Capital, a value investment fund which manages over $7bn on behalf of large US universities and family offices. Prior to Attestor, she worked at several investment firms, including Morgan Stanley and Merrill Lynch. She also currently sits on Trinity College Dublin’s Provost Council.
