She left in 1995 to join one of her clients (a $1 billion hedge fund advisory firm named Alpha Investment Management) as head of research. She rapidly became a Partner and the Managing Director of Investments until they sold the company to Safra National Bank. She then went to work for Royal Bank of Canada to build their hedge fund advisory business. She was there for 5 years as CEO and CIO of the RBC Alternative Asset Management business.
