Pam relocated to South Africa in 2011 to assist the Industrial Development Corporation, a development finance institution, on a multi-billion rand mandate to invest in renewable energy projects. In 2013, she founded Arista Capital Advisors, a financial advisory firm providing services to private sector, government, and NGO clients in the clean energy and infrastructure sector in Africa. In 2021, Pam became a partner in Infra Impact Investment Managers, a specialist infrastructure investment manager that provides growth capital to the energy, water, waste, and telecommunications sectors in South Africa. Pam has been a presenter and panel speaker at various industry forums as an expert in renewable energy finance, and has had reports published in industry reviews.
