She started her career in 1994 in financial analysis, first at Lombard Odier and then with Julius Baer.
Eftimie then joined Syz Asset Management in 2004 where she developed the Oyster franchise in German-speaking Switzerland and German-speaking countries until 2011.
After an entrepreneurial project between 2012 and 2014, she worked at Bellevue Asset Management as head of Fund Sales for distributors and institutional clients.
