Guest Interview, Ayesha Tariq CFA
Author of Banking on the Market, Macro Specialist, Corporate Banker, and an 18-Year Industry Veteran
Today I gladly share a conversation I had with Ayesha Tariq, a tenured corporate banker with over 18 years in the industry, a macro specialist, and author of Banking on the Market. After beginning her career in corporate banking in Bangladesh, Ayesha migrated to the UAE circa 2006 to continue her career in the sector, later adopting the role of head of treasury for a $1B+ family office and also consulting for banks in relation to syndications.
Ayesha is someone I had the pleasure of meeting a few years back and is a highly intelligent, kind and curious person, who views the investment landscape from the eyes of both a lender and a macroeconomist. In today’s discussion, we talk about her history in corporate banking, viewing companies from the eyes of a lender, why macro is so important in one’s process, the current macro environment, and women’s voices in finance. I hope you enjoy it.
