Her life’s path as award-winning business leader and her passionate commitment to advance women’s professional success:
“The key to good work certainly must be values and high motivation. I have always been convinced that by moving money around, the big capital, it contributes to global growth. That money is put to work by investing in manufacturing companies, growing companies, in companies that provide jobs. Those people who do finance, mostly they do it with the goal of putting together people and money to create growth. It is important to finance those companies to help them grow and open new markets. New markets that then employ people, and more and more people in various parts of the world more, sometimes even in unimaginable ways. When financing activities are done right, then, it means to support financially companies that have an interest to develop, expand, we can help them to overcome difficulties. Clearly the goal is not profit only, but growth. Growth that is synonymous with progress in this case, this is what everyone really wants. So, if we can help to finance a company that then creates jobs, the benefit goes to all at the end; the same thing happens when we support financially companies with a diffuse ownership. This is because if the pension fund invests in a growing company, the individual retiree will reap an economic advantage, with higher returns and a better life. This is created by people like me, who put together ideas and capital to make society flourish and develop, this is what we do: we put together ideas and capital and, ultimately, create progress."
