La Lettre du Trésorier
You are 32 years old, can you tell me about your career path?
Katarina Azib: After I finished my studies in Slovakia specialising in banking, finance and investment, I spent three years in London studying languages and IT.
I moved to France in 2000 and continued my studies at evening classes at the CNAM where I first got a postgraduate qualification in managerial studies, specialising in financial management, then more recently a Masters in management science, market finance, specialising in international asset management.
In the meantime, I had started work as soon as I moved to France – first in financial consultancy for insurance, contingency and savings, then for the Caisse de Retraite et de Prevoyance Réunica/Bayard, one of the biggest institutional investors, in treasury, where I was responsible for treasury management and researching monetary placements.
