Alexandra Jorden

I started my career in 2009 as an audit trainee at Nyman Libson Paul in London, working across a range of clients including theatres, film production companies, charities and other small to medium sized business.

After obtaining my ACA qualification in 2012, I spent four months travelling in South America, before joining St George Plc (a division of Berkeley Group), initially as a Management Accountant and later as a Senior Management Accountant.

I joined Octopus Investments in March 2016 as the Finance Manager on the Octopus Inheritance Tax Service. My role expanded along with the underlying portfolio, and I became involved in a number of projects, including acquisitions of renewable energy assets and a start-up fibre business, raising additional debt financing and preparation for a listing on the NEX exchange.

I moved into my current role as Financial Controller for the institutional care home and retirement living funds managed by Octopus Real Estate in August 2019. Since joining the Real Estate team I’ve established financial procedures and policies for the new retirement living fund and led my team through the merger of the two largest care home funds.
