Bella Caridade-Ferreira, CEO

Bella has 17 years’ experience in the research and analysis of the UK, European and Asian asset management industries. She set up Fundscape in 2010. Before starting Fundscape, she worked for Lipper FMI as Global Head of Research and Publications and was the author of numerous publications and reports including the popular European and Asian Data Digests, the Fund Market Profile series of reports and the UK Platform guide.

Early in her career she worked in investment banking and a London-based consulting firm where she specialised in market entry strategies for retail and institutional asset managers. She has a master’s degree in International Business and is fluent in four languages.

Bella is particularly fussy about grammar and punctuation, and loves going to the theatre, disco dancing and pub quizzes.

Alkistis Plousaki, Research and Analytics Manager

Alkistis left her native Athens in 2004 to finish her studies in the UK and has never gone back.

After completing a Masters in Finance & Investment, she began her career at Bloomberg, before moving to the Cofunds platform and Legal & General Investment Management. The combination of fund manager and platform experience is pretty rare, so Fundscape jumped at the chance of adding Alkistis to the team.

Alkistis dotes on her little boy George, likes getting really hot and sweaty at bikram yoga, travelling to big cities around the world, and when she gets the chance, escaping to the tiny islands of her native Greece. Oh one last thing, she loves her food. A lot.

Line Ryder Richardson, Admin and Social Media Executive

Line (pronounced Lee-nah) left Denmark on a gap year 25 years ago and still hasn’t gone home. Her last stop was Luxembourg and finding it a fun place to live (who knew?) she spent the next few years honing her fund skills at Flemings (she knows a thing or two about sicavs).

She eventually moving to London in 2000 where she worked as a research analyst for Lipper until 2011 when she left to retrain as a traditional furniture upholsterer.

Line joined Fundscape in January 2017. She likes spending time with her family, lots of strong G&Ts, DIY and Matt Damon.  Not necessarily in that order either.

Gayle Harrison, Marketing Consultant

Gayle has 18 years’ experience in consumer marketing for large international organisations, most recently at Heineken where she was responsible for much-loved campaigns for brands including Foster’s, John Smith’s and Kronenbourg, and for developing a global strategy for development of the cider category outside the UK.

Gayle left Heineken in 2016 to set up her own marketing consultancy specialising in brand development and international marketing.

Gayle is a proud mum to a very energetic little boy and admits to being something of a middle-aged cliché having recently completed her first triathlon (marathons? they’re easy peasy).
