About Bettie

You can’t run an investment firm without operations. I simply never imagined I’d be directing a global investment firm operations team. I joined the industry post college, put my head down and got to work. T. Rowe Price introduced me to the world of mutual fund accounting and separately managed accounts. I fully established my investment operations career at Thornburg, where my hard work was continually rewarded with more responsibility. I’m proud to have done the same for others. In 2020, I moved out of state and considered myself retired—major transitions on their own, but even more challenging in a year that tested everything. It was a needed refresh and reset. I’m ready to once again make an impact by building the operations base of City Different Investments.
