During her work for the international investment bank, Anita mainly engaged in cross-border M&A advisory and corporate finance businesses in various sectors. Prior to this, Anita also had two years of working experience at Ernst & Young Transaction Advisory Services in Hong Kong.

She received her Bachelors degree with full scholarship from Lingnan University in Hong Kong, with a major in Accounting and a minor in Finance. She has also studied at LSE in London and the University of Groningen in the Netherlands through short-term study, which offered her a diverse global perspective.

Anita hopes to further refine her financial skillset and accelerate her career in finance by pursuing the Masters in Finance programme at LBS.
