New Treasury Director-general Andorn Made Waves in Capital Markets

As head of the giant pension manager Amitim, Yair Lapid’s choice for top treasury set new standards for transparency, debt bailouts and corporate governance.

When private equity firm Hamilton Lane held its annual conference in Israel about a month ago, among those present was Yael Andorn, who at the end of 2011 had finished a seven-year stint as CEO of Amitim, a company managing eight veteran pension funds with combined assets of over NIS 160 billion.
