In this edition of the Kurtosys Podcast, we chatted with LRI Group’s Global Head of Business Development Manuela Froehlich.

Manuela has worked in the investment industry for 30 years and discusses how sales roles in the sector still rely on positive and sustainable human relationships, but booming technologies can also assist sales enablement to focus on building these relationships rather than investing time in research. Elsewhere, she discusses the competitiveness of fintech companies in Luxembourg and Germany, and what working for a financial services company in Luxembourg – a major finance hub – is like.

Manuela co-founded Fondsfrauen in 2015, the largest professional network in asset management in German speaking countries, and Manuela fills us in on the work that this company does to nurture talent and bring young graduates into the sector, as well as how female empowerment in financial services has been exemplified on International Women’s Day.
