Rina has a passion for the arts, the roots of which go back to her childhood. Her mother and sister are both gallerists and she has throughout her life been surrounded by all forms of creativity, from contemporary paintings and sculpture to sound and performance art. It is the art of her time that interests Rina, and therefore she is delighted to be involved with a company that combines the classic with the contemporary. Very responsive to the visual world, she lives in an art-filled home and regularly attends performances. Rina Mirchandani is a Director in the Global Markets business at Deutsche Bank, and has lived and worked in London since 2010.
