Malini Saba’s Success As An Investor And Philanthropist

Investment is a complicate business that necessitates proper strategies and market analysis. Today, women are founders or CEO’s of start-up businesses. However, investment remains to be a risky business. I believe that this is a new era where the economy no longer depends on muscular strength. It is a period where women have learnt to cultivate skills and their natural abilities by taking up different roles and emerging successful. Malini Saba started as a small investor. Over the years, she has earned her place as a successful and prudent investment expert.
Malini Saba is originally from South Asia. Because of her success, she has been actively involved in philanthropic activities. She is founder of Saban, an investment company interested in technology firms, gas and oil as well as real estate businesses around the globe. Her career kicked off in the 1990s at Silicon Valley where she was a venture capitalist. By the time she was leaving Silicon Valley, she had invested in over 20 technology companies. Some of these companies are Sycamore Networks, Inc., PayPal Inc., and Netscreen Technologies, Inc.

As a committed philanthropist, Malini established Stree: Global Investment in Women in 2001. This organization targets low-income women and vulnerable children across the world. Through the corporation, Malini desired to change the self-perception of her target audience and intended to change their belief about their role in society. The former U.S. President, Bill Clinton was present during the launch of Stree. The organization helps women access health care services, empowers them legally and facilitates grassroots movements to apply public policy in Eastern Europe, Africa, Central America and India.

In 2005, Malini donated $1 million. It is my belief that this amount was put into good use during the construction of the Heart Research Center at El Camino Hospital in South Asia. In 2004, she pledged $10 million in support of the Tsunami victims in India and Sri Lanka. This information was originally mentioned on The Huffington Post.

Malini Saba was born in Malaysia. She moved to the U.S. at the age of 19. She earned her master’s in Psychology from the University of Western Australia. She also holds a PhD from Stanford University.  Malini met and talked to investment bankers about investing in telecommunications, real estate and commodities among other sectors. By mid 2000’s, Malini had her eye on the Asian and South American investment markets. This information was originally reported on Malini Saba’s website.
