Before anything else, I am curious and passionate about life and my children, about absolutely everything they bring me - highs and lows.
For me, investing has always been the balance between reading a lot, listening to intuition, having discipline and patience - a professional love at first sight. Something I discovered when I was still a student-worker at Fundo Verde in 2003.
For me, WE is all that combined. Here, I am responsible for managing our portfolios and for always bringing us a pinch of newness.
I began my career in 2002, at Itaú Unibanco. I worked there for 19 years, becoming Global Head of Itaú Private Banking. In addition, I was part of the bank's Partners Program.
I am a Business Administration graduate from PUC-RJ, and studied Leadership at Harvard University and The Wharton School. In my spare time, I try to be with my family, go to Maracanã arena in my hometown to watch Flamengo matches, and play tennis, sport I have practiced since I was a child.
At WE, I'm the partner responsible for our executive committee.
I've lived most of my life outside Brazil - it was 17 years in the US - between college, Goldman Sachs and Itaú -, and 10 years in Switzerland, at Goldman Sachs. The 24 years of my professional life have always been dedicated to helping Brazilian families invest their assets.
I graduated from Susquehanna University (EUA) in finance and received my CFA charter in 2004.
At WE, I am one of the partners focused on clients and offshore investments. I spend most of my free time with my family, in addition to being an enthusiast of themes related to health and longevity.
I have graduated in business at FGV-EAESP. I began my career at Advis Investimentos and later, by curiosity, I had an experience as a CFO in the real economy.
Everything different fascinates me. From people to experiences. Actually, one of the most amazing was climbing the Kilimanjaro.
I am passionate about sports - I have run a marathon, done Ironman and played basketball for seven years (my height does not help much!).
I am the founding partner, member of the executive committee, who looks for people and management. We founded WE because the one way to bring the new is by thinking new.
I am passionate about my family, my friends and my dogs. Despite my Japanese descent, I had a Nipponese-Italian upbringing, which makes me speak and gesticulate more than a true Asian.
An Accounting Science graduate, in the WM world, my great schools were Pragma and UBS Consenso, where I worked for 9 and 3 years, respectively.
At WE, I am responsible for Operations, an area I am truly in love with.
I absolutely love the Samurai culture and physical activities: I practiced Kenjutsu for several years; I even won gold in the national women's tournament.
I currently play seven-a-side football and, at WE, I am responsible for structural enhancements involving automations.

I'm a bit quiet and reserved, but always eager to tackle new challenges. I enjoy reading, watching series and learning new things (sometimes, useless).
At WE, I look after illiquid and alternative investments.
A music and soccer fan, I was a symphonic percussionist for my competence and a goalkeeper for my insistence. In my spare time, I suffer with my team and make comments about other people's teams.

I graduated in Law from Largo São Francisco in 2012, and looked to working with investments since I started my career as an attorney.
A fan of classic Literature and Rock - from Homer's Iliad to Led Zeppelin. A hardcore Palmeiras supported, my mood depends greatly on the team's performance. At WE, I am the partner who looks after our private credit and alternative investments.
I love sports: before WE, I was a professional American football player in Brazil. After getting to know the financial market, I fell in love and strived to deepen my knowledge in the area.
My responsibility at WE is to check and calculate the profitability of the funds we manage.
A huge fan of having a new experience. I love a competition: karate, swimming, or on all different digital platforms - but I won't pass a good movie, mostly if at the theater.
At WE, I work with the operations team, primarily assisting with enhancements and automations, aiming at efficient running of the business and gains in scale.
I am a musician in my free time. I enjoy cycling, motocross and being in contact with nature, mostly mountains. I have done yoga for several years now, and currently reading is my favorite hobby.

I really enjoy reading, dancing, studying foreign languages and acquiring new knowledge that will contribute to my personal and professional development.
I truly prize spending time with my family - especially on Sundays, when we get together for lunch - and with my friends, as well. My professional experience was developed in the Administrative and Finance areas. It is to these areas I currently dedicate at WE.
Passionate about rugby and swimming, I will not pass a good movie or a good police novel on a Friday night.
At WE, I support the team that works with the families in their daily demands, and I am responsible for the operational side, in the relationship with our clients and funds with investment banks and management firms.
I have always been fascinated by the financial market and by people, even though I spent my whole childhood on a farm in Northern Paraná state. I graduated from Insper and found in Hedging-Griffo/Credit Suisse my great school for 12 years.
I am a great enthusiast of Brazil and Brazilians, and I see in WE the sum of all I like to do, the way I believe it, in a country that still has a long way to go.
At WE, I am one of the partners in charge of clients and I am wholly focused on overseeing the service provided those families.
My professional life has always been dedicated to working with clients and helping them invest their assets. I started my career at Hedging-Griffo in 2004, later Credit Suisse Hedging-Griffo, where I spent 11 years. In 2015, I went to Itaú where I stayed 6 years, working initially in the Ultra-High Client segment and later at Itaú Family Office. As one of WE's partners, my focus is fully dedicated to caring for and serving Families.
In my free time, I really enjoy being with my family and friends, as well as playing tennis.
I love keeping up with several sports and eating good food surrounded by people I like. I am happy when I can watch Corinthians matches with my father and talk for hours with my mother (she is a psychologist, so it works out just fine!). At WE, I work in the investment team, on the side of analyzing and forming portfolios.
