I consider Malini Saba to be one of the leading investors and philanthropists globally. She is of South Asian origin. Malini is the founder of Saban, a global firm that has several investment interests. Her company has interest in US technology firms in addition to oil and gas in China. Saban also invests in real estate in countries like India and Australia.
She is the most passionate philanthropist that I know of. In 2001, Malini established Stree: Global Investments in Women, a non-profit organization. Through Stree, Malin aims to change how at risk as well as low income women and children across the world see themselves. The organization also endeavors to change how they view of their roles in society.
Stree was inaugurated by Bill Clinton, former US president along with Jordan’s Queen Noor. It offers women a means of accessing healthcare as well as legal empowerment. It also provides grassroots movements a forum to connect with public policy in Eastern Europe, India, Central America, and Africa. In June 2005, Malini Saba made what I regard as one of the biggest contributions in history. She gave $1 million to start the first Heart Research Center in the world for South Asians at El Camino Hospital. In 2004, Malini toured India and Sri Lanka. She visited the areas affected by The Tsunami. Malini pledged $ 10 million to the disaster victims.
Her remarkable investment career started in 1990s. Malini worked as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. I believe she is one of the highly experienced investors in the technology field. She has invested in technology firms for more than 20 years. They include PayPal Inc., Sycamore Networks, as well as Netscreen. This information was originally posted on the Huffington Post.
About Malini Saba
Malini Saba was born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Sri Lankan Parents. Much of her childhood was spent in Australia where she grew up prior to moving to the United States. She relocated to the US when she was 19. Malini had only $200 to survive. Starting from scratch with that humble background, Malini established a strong foundation for the accomplishments she has presently achieved. This information was first published on Malini Saba’s website.
From an early stage, Malini was interested in investment. She obtained advice from leading bankers whenever an opportunity came up. I believe it is that advice, which led her in making the right moves as an investor. So far, she has had great success in the real estate, telecommunications, and commodities industries. In my View, she is one of the most respected investor and philanthropists that have done a great job through Stree. Details of this information were first reported on Malini’s LinkedIn profile.
