IMAGINE Leaders – Aslihan Denizkurdu
Chief Operating Officer, Loomis Sayles Capital Re
Born and raised in a small town in Turkey. Lived in Florence for a year before adventuring into NY for Finance & International Business Studies at NYU. ~20 years on Wall Street, investing in Financials, advising the Treasury on TARP (AllianceBernstein), building out / reducing country presence for a global bank and as well running the global Risk Management division (Citigroup). Switched to crypto in the spirit of joining a growth company in a growth industry. That story is unfolding in unexpected ways… A lover of nature – spend winter free time backcountry hiking and skiing (minimum lift rides; all on foot) and summer free time training for triathlons, sailing with family and enjoying Mediterranean air, food and existence. Love listening to others and contributing in any I can to their journeys in life. Daily philosophy is doing 3 good deeds for others.
