Filppou Investments Group
One of the original members of the Group, Vica brings a profound understanding of the financial services and fintech space, particularly payments, retail and investment banking.
Passionate about catalysing change in the financial services landscape of the Digital Age, she works with large corporates and start-ups alike to formulate strategies that drive growth through innovation.
Before joining Anthemis, Vica was an Investment Banker at Credit Suisse, where she focused on leveraged finance. In the Portfolio Management Group, she ran a $1.5bn debt portfolio with a main focus on the media and infrastructure sectors. Prior to that, during her time in the Financial Sponsors Group, Vica executed leveraged buy-out transactions across a variety of industries.
Born in St. Petersburg, raised in Athens, educated in Milan and now living in London, Vica has a diverse, international background. She graduated summa cum laude from Bocconi University and is fluent in four languages (and can manage in French too). She has a wicked sense of humour and also serves as our resident fashion advisor!
