Malini Saba: A True Role Model For Women Investors Around The World

When I first decided to become an investment banker, I thought it would be a good idea to learn as much as I could about other women in the investment field. One preeminent female investor that seemed to be a good role model was Malini Saba. I was particularly impressed by her humble beginnings. She was born to middle class parents in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and grew up in Australia. At age 19 she moved to the United States with her husband and only $200. They attended Stanford University where she sharpened her interest in investments. She talked to every investment banker she could and got as much advice as possible. She scrimped and saved over the years until she was able to invest in areas such as telecommunications and real estate. She was on her way!

In the 1990s Saba started out as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. She gained a lot of experience on investing in a number of technology companies such as the e-commerce service company PayPal Inc. and the American technology corporation Netscreen Technologies, Inc. She was highly successful in these early investments, and that led to the development of her desire to be a philanthropist. In the year 2001 she started a non-profit organization called “Stree: Global Investments in Women.” This establishment changes the way low income children and women view themselves. The program created improved conditions for women and children by providing access to healthcare and other programs in Africa, India, Eastern Europe and Central America.

Malini Saba may be best known as the founder and Chairman of the Board of the Saban Group. This company has dealings with a variety of interests around the globe. These financial assets include technology companies in the United States, real estate ventures in India and Australia, and gas and oil in China. Saba can see potential in such things as the commodity markets when others cannot. Future opportunities are the reasons she owns thousands of acres of palm oil and rice fields. She also owns iron ore mines and other agricultural spaces since these commodities only grow without slowing down.

Malini visited the regions in Sri Lanka and India that were ravaged by the Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004. She pledged a generous $10 million to those injured by the tragedy. She also gave $1 million for the first Heart Research Center intended for South Asians at El Camino Hospital in Mountain View, CA. She is indeed one of the best role models for women everywhere.

Changing the Compliance Game with Helane Morrison

Compliance officers have a thankless, yet essential job on Wall Street. Responsible for ensuring that traders follow all rules and regulations, these officers oftentimes are pinned as scapegoats when companies step out of line. But with all this risk and malign means that firms and businesses are in desperate need of qualified employees to take on the job. It’s almost impossible for me to believe, but salaries for compliance officers can actually reach over $2 million a year. I guess with risk comes reward!

There have been recent movements to ensure compliance officers can complete their jobs without fear of being given up by companies who step out of line. First, they are seeking more independence. They would not report to the head of the company, but an external executive who is not connected with setting policies, and will be unbiased in the matter. There has also been a crack down on “letting things slide,” and harsher penalties are being put in place and enforced.

One compliance officer who I believe is helping to change the game for others in her profession is?Helane Morrison. Morrison received a B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University, and subsequently earned a J.D. from the University of California Berkeley. She practice law and became a partner at Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin, where she conducted corporate investigations and specialized in business litigation.?

Nowadays, Morrison has worked for Hall Capital for 7 years, and is adamant about pushing An aggressive agenda to reform complicance officers. In past years she has spearheaded successful investigations against New York companies through her time with the SEC. Helane was actually the first woman to be appointed the title of Regional Director with the SEC in San Francisco. With all her experience and hardball attitude, it is clear to me that Morrison is revolutionizing the way complicance officers act, demanding respect and getting results.

Helane Morrison and compliance officers are always on the lookout for wrongdoing. Instead of turning the other cheek or letting it pass, the system is being more strict and looking closer at any suspicious activity. Yes, it makes them the unpopular “bad guys” among Wall Street corporations. But I know I’d rather they sort our right from wrong and put an end to corruption.
