Who are you?
Meet me. I am Dunya Ansems, Portfolio Manager at BOOST&Co.
What do you do?
I monitor the performance of the companies in which BOOST&Co have made investments in order to respond to their growth needs, manage risk and enhance opportunities for the Fund.
What do you love most about your job and why?
Learning about new and wonderfully innovative companies and interacting with their interesting and colourful management teams.
What motivates you to work hard?
The BOOST&Co team. These are some smart, authentic, brave and driven individuals. It is a pleasure to work so closely with them on a daily basis.
What was your first job?
Waitressing for 5 years, all through university. I personally think it is great experience in customer service and every kid should do it.
What is on thing you will never do again?
Drive across Kansas, USA – literally 10 hours of… cornfields!
What can’t you work without?
What really makes you angry?
Litter… its lazy and selfish.
Tell us something interesting about you, that few people know.
I cannot catch a ball (or any flying object for that matter).
What dream do you still want to fulfil?
To spend a month 4×4’ing through Madagascar.
What is your favourite sport?
Trail running. I love to escape to the mountains after work and on the weekends. It’s the only way to get to the most undiscovered and unspoilt places in our own back yard.
Where will you be travelling next?
Victoria Falls for some white water rafting action.
