Malini Saba is the chair of Saban– an establishment that has had or rather retains various diverse investment interests worldwide like oil and gas companies in China, technology in the US and real estate in India and Australia.
As a passionate philanthropist, Malini started the “Stree: Global Investment in Women.” Stree is a non-profit agency that aims at changing the way at-risk and low-income women and children in the whole world see themselves and their societal roles. This organization was inaugurated by Bill Clinton- Former US President. It offers a means by which women access legal empowerment and healthcare. It is also a forum through which grassroots movements connect with public policies in India, Africa, Central America and Eastern Europe.
Her life as an investor and philanthropist
Born in southern Asia, Malini Saba is an investor and philanthropist who has worked so hard to become an international business person. I think her life is one to be imitated by many.
She began her career several years back investing into territories the world over. Together with her associates, she fought so hard against corrupt individuals who tried to push her out of her area when she was just starting out. In the process, she lost a lot of cash, time as well as businesses.
An average person would have given up, but not Malini. She went on and started another enterprise with her associates. Once more, they encountered some pretty nasty experiences. Still, she did not quit!
As of today, it is clear that her persistence did pay off. Malini is among the biggest large-scale resource owners involving energy companies, rice fields, and real estate.
I am also intrigued by the fact that she is helping the less fortunate in the society. The Stree organization that she started helps in elevating other women.
Malini Saba began her investment career in the 90s with organizations from Silicon Valley. Her investment ventures include Netscreen Technologies, Paypal and Sycamore Networks, all of which have proved to be really successful.
One thing I realized is that Saba knows how to choose the best investments to risk her money. As she puts it, the commodity market is one of her favorite places to invest due to the risks involved as well as the high returns.
It is so incredible that even with her success; Malini still puts her family first. She does not rely on babysitters to take care of her child. Unlike many business women, she has a direct connection with her child.
