Client Services & Strategy

Liv Simpson

Liv joined the team in 2018 and leads Client Services. She’s responsible for looking after and managing communications with existing and potential investors and for leading the fundraising efforts when they come around.

She also supports on the strategy side, helping to provide the data-driven analysis that is Tenzing’s bread and butter. When Guy, Christian and Rob set up Tenzing, they did so with a comprehensive Business Plan and Liv has helped develop the next iteration.

Liv took a less well-trodden path into Finance by, helpfully, studying English Literature. Relishing a challenge, she started her career as an analyst at Citigroup, learning the M&A ropes. After three years of financial statements, formulas and food delivery at the office, she moved to Finsbury, a strategic communications firm. There, she finally applied her love of writing, together with her new-found financial knowledge, to support listed clients with diverse communications needs, from crisis management to Capital Markets Days.

In Tenzing, she found a home in Investor Relations. Tenzing immediately stood out because of its vibrant and ambitious entrepreneurial nature and its inspiring people. Always on the look-out for a new challenge and a means to improve, Liv gained her CFA charter in 2019 after three glorious years of study (see “closet nerd” to the right).

Home truths

  • She has a twin and they’re mildly competitive (translation: there’s no such thing as winning silver, just losing a gold)
  • She’s a closet nerd who loves exams and words (family games of Boggle & Articulate were always terrifying to guests)

Favourite things

  • Playing the piano in a one-bed flat, now with headphones thanks to a complaining boyfriend
  • Bermondsey Street for the coffee, sourdough and takeaway espresso martinis
