Sarah Gwyther

Legal Counsel and Compliance Officer

Sarah is responsible for the internal systems and controls that ensure we are compliant with the rules and regulations that apply to Nesta’s regulated investment activity. Sarah is a qualified lawyer, specialising in funds and financial services and assists the legal team on relevant matters.

Sarah has returned to Nesta to work with the investments team after previously contracting at Nesta. She has 14 years of experience in funds and financial services, having previously trained and qualified in private practice and worked in-house for banks, asset managers and pension managers. More recently, she has been contracting and providing outsourced in-house counsel services to start ups in the investment space.

Outside the office, Sarah enjoys cycling, swimming and doing battle with the weeds in the family garden in the hope of having some vegetables survive in semi-neglect.
