Anna Wroblewska

Anna began her career in finance as a college intern at a hedge fund, and she hasn’t been able to escape its siren song ever since. She’s done academic research at Harvard Business School and UCLA, was the COO of a wealth management firm, and now writes about finance, economics, behavior, and business. Anna recently relocated to a fascinatingly small town in South Africa's Western Cape. Operating in several time zones at once, she sleeps at odd hours and has developed a benign obsession with the cappuccino. She finished her MBA at the UCLA Anderson School of Management and her BA in Economics at the University of Southern California.
