After an impressive 13 year stint at JPMorgan in its M&A and ECM divisions, Kalisvaart followed our chair, Mike Harris at Monument Partners, where she co-created the investment strategy to underpin a fintech-focussed venture fund. More recently she spearheaded an accelerated roll-up strategy for financial ecommerce companies at the private equity fund Aquiline Capital. She's joining us to help push our development even further, and help Dashly shoot for the stars!

Much of her career has been spent supporting the best entrepreneurs reach the ultimate pinnacle of listing their companies on the London Stock Exchange, partnering along the way to bring their organisations up to international best standards. Some of it has also been focussed on keeping companies afloat in their most troubled times, and she's played a huge role in helping people keep their jobs and livelihoods.
