Catharina is currently working on the Blended Finance Taskforce. Combining her background in development finance and sustainability, Catharina joined SYSTEMIQ excited about the opportunity to join a team developing innovative solutions and where making meaningful impact is a shared goal.

Previously, Catharina worked for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). This allowed her not only to gain solid banking and investment skills, but also to learn about new cultures having worked longer periods in both Tbilisi and Istanbul. At EBRD, she successfully structured and managed a number of milestone corporate transactions, with a heavy focus on energy and resource efficiency.

For years, she used to spend all her spare time in the horse stables having competed for the Norwegian equestrian team. These days, she really enjoys travelling - ideally combined with some skiing or hiking!
