Carol Pepper, CEO of Pepper International (www.pepperinternational.com), is a world-renowned expert in international wealth management. Carol manages money for some of the wealthiest families in the world. Prior to forming her own company, she had a career as a Private Banker for JP Morgan, Citibank and Credit Suisse and was a Senior Portfolio Manager at the Rockefeller Family Office where she managed over a billion dollars for individuals, trusts and foundations.
In her long career of working with the ultra-wealthy, she heard stories and worked on challenges that were fascinating but that she could never speak about due to the confidential nature of her business. Carol has always loved creative writing and decided to share the world of the ultra-rich that she works in through her novels.
Carol wrote Beyond Blood, her first novel, while traveling the globe lecturing to wealthy families in Geneva, Dubai, Singapore and Sao Paulo. She was inspired by some of the unbelievable problems she saw when wealthy parents try to control their children with money, and wrote a thriller that tells the tale of an heiress who seeks to free herself from the clutches of a Benefactor with sinister plans.
In addition, Carol has completed The Seven Pearls of Financial Wisdom: A Woman's Guide To Enjoying Wealth and Power with co-author Camilla Webster. To learn more, visit www.thesevenpearls.com.
