“Anastasija has played an important role in the success of Twino,” said Lasovskis.
“She was an integral in obtaining an investment brokerage firm license in 2021, and when we started to work on the licensing it was initially envisaged that Anastasija would be the successor of the company’s chief executive, therefore, she’s been actively involved in investment platform’s operational activities and decisions long enough to take over the management of the company completely.”
