My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: Figuring out a short-medium term career plan

About me: Born and raised in New Delhi, I had unknowingly become privy to everyday economic developments in a rapidly developing juggernaut like India. This prompted me to sway from family tradition and pursue a degree in Economics and Management, to gain a deeper understanding of how the world works. Having spent three years in Italy, worked in Dubai and finally moved to London, I developed an interest in global financial markets and how they interact - leading me to the MFA.

During my undergraduate studies, I was exposed to consulting, equity research, investment funds and wealth management. This, coupled with courses in behavioural finance and markets showed me the importance of the human side of finance - making wealth and asset management my target career choice.

In my off time, I love burying my nose into a good work of fiction or discovering the best cafés around London. I believe there’s something for everyone here, and with the right people around, it’s easy to find your place.

Three topics I can be approached about: Moving to London; Investment Management Club; Women in Finance
