FinTech's DEI Discussions #WomenOfFinTech | Sahra Abdille, Director of Digital Investing at Coutts

"It's important for employers to understand how intersectionality impacts upon their workforce during all stages of the employee life cycle... Large groups of women still aren't represented or don't feel like they are heard or seen."

Joining Nadia today in the #WomenOfFinTech series is Sahra Abdille, Director of Digital Investing at Coutts.

Born in the Netherlands with Somali heritage and a journey that took her from a small village to the heart of London, Sahra’s rich cultural background fuels her passion for inclusivity in finance.

She shares her non-linear path to success, from data and analytics to leading digital investment strategies, and underscores the critical role of diversity and resilience in bridging the gender investment gap.

Discover how Sahra’s unique perspective and commitment to inclusion are shaping a more equitable financial technology industry.
