Karine Hoang is the Head of Sales over Southern Europe at Smart Beta Strategies & ETF for OSSIAM, a position she has held since 2011. She covers all aspects of business development and coverage of institutional clients and asset managers (including multi-managers, diversified portfolio managers) for France, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

Karine graduated with a financial engineering degree from École Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris, an Ivy League engineering school in France, in 1998. Prior to OSSIAM she worked as a senior strategy consultant at Arthur D. Little and then in the finance sector as a manager in strategy consulting at Solving International to lead a large-scale reengineering project. Karine followed that position as a structured product engineer in the equity derivatives and alternative investments division for Société Générale S.A. After two years there, she moved back to financial engineering industry, working for three years in institutional investor relations at Lyxor Asset Management in order to develop the transferable technical skills she is gaining in the exchange traded fund business.
Karine has been promoted in these professional fields in a natural progression throughout her career by being a finance-engineering hybrid. She would be delighted to develop a networking and action plan to raise her profile and further develop skills that will positively affect her career. She believes her ability and talents to share experience and network could also help women to thrive in their occupation.
In the next three to five years, Karine strives to hold an executive-level position and grow in her professional network. The keys to her success are her mentors, scientific background, always having a positive perspective and a little bit of luck. The highlight of her career is the professional development she has acquired over time.
In her spare time, she enjoys travel and all things equestrian. She resides in Paris, France.
