Kristina Anguelova is Head of Asia Sustainable Finance at World Wide Fund For Nature (WWF) in Singapore and oversees technical teams across banking, investment, financial regulation and ESG technical training. She is also part of WWF’s Global Finance Practice Leadership Team and supports the network agenda for Asia.
Previously, Kristina led WWF’s Asia Sustainable Finance Initiative (ASFI) – a multi-stakeholder alliance that aims to harness the power of the finance sector, transitioning capital markets to direct capital towards low-carbon, climate-resilient and nature-positive economies. Beyond general ESG themes, ASFI focuses on high-impact sectors in Asia such as food and agriculture, energy, transport, and infrastructure.
Before joining WWF-Singapore, Kristina established and developed a multilateral association, supporting several countries with little or no representation in Singapore, building bridges and knowledge-sharing between governments, central banks and development institutions, as well as real economy participants.
She is an active angel and impact investor, supporting early-stage startups through mentorship, advisory and investment. Her passion cuts across multiple UN SDGs but she is mainly active in SGD 1, 4, 7, 10 & 13.
