Within Business Services, Osman has advised multinational corporates on outsourcing operational functions and partnered with traditional and alternative asset managers on fund formation and portfolio administration.

Cleo spent three years at a global leader in financial technology services, helping buy-side institutions achieve improved operational efficiencies across investment products. She then focused on private funds, nurturing strategic relationships and advising on operational platforms across the investment life-cycle.
