She specialises in environmental finance, building social enterprises, developing startups, and emerging markets project management. Most recently, Tenke was an Investment Manager at Islan Asset Management in Switzerland, advising global agribusiness Bunge on sustainable direct investments, and implementing projects in least developed countries' food-water-energy sectors.

Our logo

Better Finance adopted the image of Miquel Barceló's Gran Elefandret (2008) to represent the defiance of expectation and evolution of accepted norms. 

Gran Elefandret balances on its trunk, searching for equilibrium and demonstrating a feat extraordinary but not impossible. With the global economy at a tipping point, Better Finance was founded to support the investment landscape's evolution into one that is innovative, sustainable, and impactful.

Exposed to the public gaze, inviting scrutiny, and battling the natural elements each season, the bronze sculpture encourages a multidimensional introspection.
