Filipe da Costa Leite was born in 1986 in Porto, Portugal to a prominent banking family. He moved to England to study International Business and Management at Oxford Brooks University after which he went on to forge a career in finance.
Filipe worked at Roland Berger Strategy Consultants in Munich as a Financial Services Consultant and at Credit Suisse in Zurich and Singapore as a Junior Relationship Manager in Private Banking.
Coming from a family with a long tradition of collecting fine arts, Filipe naturally took interest in contemporary art and also studied Art & Business at the Sotheby’s Institute in London.
Intrigued by the nascent art fund industry he soon started researching the various art funds, eventually choosing to invest in Art Vantage PCC Limited and to join our team in a business development role based out of London.
