Feryal Bensalah / Trustee
I was born in Mauritius and moved to Scotland with my family at the age of 3. I studied Economics and Business and following this began a career in the asset management industry based in Edinburgh. Over the years I have gained experience across a number of sectors and functions covering client reporting, project and data management, analytical support and more recently ESG reporting.
Over the last few years my role evolved to include managing new grads and trainees joining the industry. The experience was rewarding and strengthened my interest in doing impactful work. New developments in the industry such as Impact Investing and the Sustainability movement brought a new perspective to Finance and also encouraged me to widen my horizons and explore impact more broadly.
Adventure Ashram’s transformative work with women and children and empowering them to be more self sufficient is a wonderful example of impact in action and inspired me to apply for a trustee role. I am both honoured and excited to join the board and play a part in this journey.
