Catherine’s experiences on Wall Street and in Washington DC are described in “Dillon Read and the Aristocracy of Stock Profits,” and in her personal story about the investigation into the whereabouts of many billions of dollars from the U.S. federal government budget:
“Long ago, I vowed never to act against the interests or accomplishments of my own people – I promised to do my best to ensure that we are worthy of stewardship, and also that we do our best to leave a better world for generations to come. Making and keeping such a promise requires an understanding that money and positions are means to ends, but not ends in themselves. And it also requires an understanding that death is not the worst thing that can happen. Some may accuse me of “swimming against the tide” and not “understanding anything about the subject.” I would counter these people that now is not the time in our nation’s history when we deny the ability of imagination.”

Renate Holzeisen was born in 1966 in Bolzano. From a young age, discipline and ambition were important virtues for her, which she put into practice especially at school and in ballet classes. In addition to her very good academic performance, Renate already proved as class president and school president that justice and standing up for others were especially close to her heart. She studied law and economics at the Leopold-Franzens University in Innsbruck, was a university assistant for two years and in between taught at several high schools in South Tyrol. “A great experience that I wouldn’t want to miss,” says Renate looking back, emphasizing that young people – then as now – can be won over and motivated by competence, openness, empathy and sympathy for complex issues. She is a lawyer, also practicing before the Supreme Courts and specializing in European and international law. In addition to her main work for companies with economic interests in Italy, she has always been concerned with issues of fundamental rights and freedoms.
She is committed to transparency, democracy and the rule of law. She is not afraid to expose corrupted power structures and political abuses, and to take legal action against them if necessary. Since March 2020, she became increasingly aware that something was and is going completely wrong around the world, and so she began working with other lawyers to ensure fundamental rights and freedoms, with a special focus on children.
