Karen Manku

Audit & Services Committee

Law graduate, pivoted to finance to make tangible impacts in sustainable development and promote affordable housing with Poplar HARCA.

Karen works in debt capital markets covering supranational and agency issuers with a focus on sustainable development. She is local to the area.

After graduating from the University of Warwick with a law degree and completing her LPC, Karen moved into finance rather than law where she felt the tangible impact made on frontline transactions would be greater. Covering a global set of clients who work towards eradicating poverty, building new infrastructure, with a specific focus on the environment, Karen was keen to contribute to making an impact closer to home.

She is looking forward to working with Poplar HARCA and furthering their goal of delivering affordable housing within vibrant communities.
