Victoria Loveday, Compliance Manager & Legal Counsel

1. What made you want to work at Pie Funds?
The fact that, while Pie Funds is a little guy in the market, it continues to ‘punch above its weight’ and be an industry disrupter. 

2. What are you most excited to achieve here?  
Strengthen and streamline some of our internal policies and practices to help with efficiencies, but also to ensure compliance with the regulatory framework.

3. Describe yourself in 5 words: 

    • Hardworking
    • Kind
    • Bad at excel

4. What book do you think everyone should read?
I don’t think anyone should take my advice in this regard. I love reading popular thrillers and chick-lit – I’m currently reading a book called Six Stories by James Oswald. So far, I rate it a 4/5.   

5. What do you get up to on the weekends? 
I’ve actually just moved to Auckland from Sydney, so I’m spending my free time exploring the place and meeting new people. 

6. What’s something people would be surprised to learn about you?  
When I get the chance, I love going to the snow and snowboarding. Also, my party trick is a standing backflip and I sadly always lose at cards.

I lived in four different countries and seven different cities, all before I was 12.
