An alleged sexual harassment claim brought by a female investment associate against City firm IMF involving alleged unwelcome sexual advances by one of the male executive directors has settled for £270,000. Personnel Today report that Nathalie Abildgaard alleged that on a work trip to Spain several IMF employees went to a nightclub in Madrid to celebrate the closing of a deal. During the evening, one IMF executive director allegedly made unwelcome sexual advances towards Abildgaard, including sending her text messages inviting her to his hotel room, telling her that “if I was 20 years younger, I would have been all over you” and “I know more about sex. I can teach you a lot of things.”
