About me: Vicky is originally from Shandong, China and lived in New Zealand for almost 10 years. She started her career as an R&D biochemist at a pharmaceutical startup in New Zealand. After two years of being a scientist, she was eager for a more business-oriented environment on a bigger stage. Hence, she decided to come to London and undertook her Master in Managerial Economics at LSE. After graduating with distinction, she has been working at RBS Group in London as the fintech and innovation lead for the past few years, responsible for developing strategic and commercial partnerships with fintechs and building digital products for the bank. She is also part of Fintech Connect, London's largest fintech community, as an advisory member, collaborating with industry leaders to further transform the future-ready financial service industry.

She hopes to leverage the MBA opportunity to broaden her network and advance her career in the fintech and broader technology industry. At LBS, she is the fintech vice president for the Technology and Media Club and an Executive Committee member for the Private Equity and Venture Capital Club and the Entrepreneurship Club. She is passionate about technology, diversity, travel and exploring new things!
