Private Wealth Management is a people-oriented business and you need to have the right team with the right mindset on board. Managing wealth as a profession is nothing
but managing trust and relationships. Unless you follow the right practices you won't succeed over a period time and hence, transparency is very important.

Incorporating cutting edge technology and adopting digitization has become a business necessity today. How is Ira leveraging tech trends to stay relevant in the industry?
Technology and innovation will be the way forward for the wealth management industry in the years to come and we are arming ourselves with nextgen tech solutions and digitization. For instance, investment traditionally required heavy paperwork, but we are striving to digitize all paperwork related to investments to speed up the on boarding of clients. We have also incorporated simple changes such as presenting product details on tabs, online investment and providing customers tools to analyze their investments through apps andportals which has improved transparency and made it easier for the HNIs to monitor their investments.

How has the entrepreneurial journey been and what is in store for the future of Ira?
I have been in the financial service industry for over a decade specializing in Private Wealth Management advising HNI and UHNI families. We started Ira Wealth Management three years back in early 2017. Our strength was our team intellectual capital and our passion to do something different. We have grown from strength to strength over the past three years and set up a reasonable presence in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai Hyderabad and Ahmedabad.
