Diana appears in the Top 100
People in Finance magazine.
Diana Sankovic has a literal world of experience under her belt, working across asset classes with some of the world’s top companies—and she has a healthy dose of technology experience to boot. Her specialties include – yet are hardly limited to – leading cross-functional teams and strategic initiatives, with a foundation in investment banking, private equity, and trading. Today, Diana shares her skillsets with both global corporate and tech startup clients as a consultant.
During her more than a decade-long career in high finance, Diana served as a catalyst for her teams and companies to advance and grow. Her broad-based banking, M&A, derivatives, and investment background led to her recruitment by Deutsche Bank to lead a complex and highly profitable global business based in Hong Kong. Alongside the most sophisticated institutional investors in the world, Diana helped them expand in the Asia Pacific, investing in pre-IPO deals across the capital structure in equity, debt, and hybrid products coupled with innovative hedging and financing solutions. In addition, she drove all the first privatizations in Vietnam, greatly impacting that country’s economy and new capital markets. After living for a time in Australia and New Zealand as a fulltime triathlete, Diana transitioned back to the U.S., advising and raising money for tech startups with sector specializations in digital marketing and media, as well as energy and clean tech. Her time living abroad also includes one year in Tokyo, Japan while a student at the Georgetown School of Foreign Service based in Washington, D.C.
Most recently, Diana has been in consulting roles for the management of large global financial institutions on critical regulatory and strategic initiatives, in addition to corporate digital transformation and innovation. Her investment acumen makes her capable of handling all asset classes and companies at any stage, as well as providing counsel on corporate development. In addition to helping her clients with their capital raising and portfolio management needs and strategies, she is currently involved in 100 Women in Finance, the SF CFA Society, and US Japan Council.
