Proudest professional accomplishments

With accomplishments which include developing pan-European distribution partnerships and relationships with some of the region’s largest financial institutions, Katharina has several professional accomplishments that she’s proud of, but one stands out the most. Her proudest professional accomplishment to date is helping to take Raisin from being a solely German focussed business to being international, giving over 500 million people online access to attractive savings products from across Europe.

“While I’m proud of many of my professional accomplishments, the one that stands out the most is building Raisin to be a truly pan-European business that reduces the barriers to savings products for savers throughout Europe.”
