Carolyn Xie Associate, Investments

Carolyn Xie

It’s fulfilling to partner with innovative companies and help them grow into global enterprises through our differentiated approach to operations and investing.

When I competed as a professional tennis player, I found that reaching my goals required hard work and the hunger to continuously strive for improvement. At Turn/River, I have found that everyone shares a similar mindset. The team is incredibly driven, hard-working, and collaborative when it comes to maximizing value for the companies that partner with us.

I’m passionate about optimizing performance through data-driven analysis, which I get to do in my role as an investment associate by sourcing, evaluating, and executing new opportunities. It’s fulfilling to partner with innovative companies and help them grow into global enterprises through our differentiated approach to operations and investing. Our team’s drive to continuously improve on successful results, strive for more and be an engaged, value-creating investment partner for our portfolio companies motivates me to be the best investor I can be, and to positively impact those around me. 

Prior to T/R, I was an investment banking analyst at Barclays, working on mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, and SPACs with fintech companies. I graduated magna cum laude from The University of Pennsylvania, earning a B.S. in Economics with concentrations in Finance and Legal Studies.

Outside of the office, you can find me spending time with my friends and family, playing tennis, watching sports, and producing music.
