Senior Investment Manager

Isabella Blakiston

“Working in a team with a diverse group of people has always been the part of my job that I enjoy the most and is what attracted me to private equity, and Advent in particular. Having the opportunity to work closely with founders, entrepreneurs, and management teams to grow their businesses appeals strongly to me.”

Prior to joining the Advent team, I worked at UBS in investment banking across corporate advisory and equity capital markets. While at UBS, I worked with corporate and financial sponsor clients on M&A and capital markets transactions across a range of industries including consumer products and retail, TMT, and Industrials. I graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance and Economics).

Outside of work I enjoy spending my time playing tennis, swimming at the beach, or heading to Merri Creek trail for a run. I try to get back toWestern Australia and up to Sydney as much as possible to see my friends and family.

Being new to Melbourne I have a long list of restaurants and bars that I am slowly making my way through.
