I was born to Vaishnav and Kshatriya parents in Ahmedabad, India. I earned my B.Sc ( Hon ) in Geology from Gujarat University, and later underwent my Business Management programme at Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad. I have also studied at the National Institute of Sales in India with specialization in Sales Management. I joined First Gulf Bank in 2007 as Sr. Wealth Manager at First Wealth, managing investment portfolios of UHNIs and family offices. At FGB, I integrated my knowledge of new international markets, investment best practices, risk management, estate planning to create stable and well diversified client portfolios. My approach and skills have been time tested through bull and bear markets and have created value and generated wealth for my clients.
Key to my success is my ability to constantly update myself with the information relevant to my clients, decipher and analyse them and identify opportunities for long-term wealth creation. There is no shortcut to wealth creation, but well analysed and informed investment decisions are key to wealth creation in my belief.
My current duties as Unit Head of Wealth Management, include managing team of wealth managers covering various geographies worldwide and managing client investment portfolios.
Before joining First Gulf Bank, I have worked at ICICI Prudential Life Insurance as Sr. Agency Manager in Ahmedabad, India and later was Team Manager – WM & Banassurance at Standard Chartered Bank in Dubai, UAE. I have worked at Sumaria Holdings Tanzania and Dabur India Limited.
