Christine

Christine is a technical director at Cenfri and has been part of the team since 2008. She finds the interplay between regulation, markets and ordinary people’s lives fascinating and has managed numerous studies in the microinsurance, retail payments and broader financial inclusion field. She actively contributes to the management of the FinMark Trust insurance and retail payment systems theme areas and, at a global level, supports the work of the Access to Insurance Initiative (A2ii) Secretariat. Through various projects, she has gained exposure to the country context in Asia (India, Philippines, China, Indonesia), Latin America (Brazil, Colombia) and Africa (e.g. Zambia, Swaziland, Tanzania, Mozambique, Nigeria and Lesotho).

 

Before joining Cenfri, Christine worked as an associate at Genesis Analytics. Her work there was focused predominantly on access to finance and more specifically financial education, microinsurance and AML/CFT. She has also worked on sector development and competition economics-related projects.

 

Christine holds bachelor's and master's degrees in economics (cum laude) from the University of Stellenbosch, South Africa.
