    Shankar Sharma, Founder, First Global

  • First Global, founded nearly 30 years back, by two young MBAs, in their 20s, Shankar Sharma and Ms Devina Mehra, both ex- Citibank, disrupted the Broking industry back then, offering top quality investment research, of a level, depth and integrity unheard of in India and Emerging Markets. Now, they are repeating the same Strategy in the Investment and Wealth Management Business, worldwide and in India. Their deep sense of ethics, combined with the most advanced Proprietary Investment Tech in the world, has put First Global into a unique category of Investment & Wealth Management firms globally: a firm that doesn't care for its own bottom line: it cares only for its clients'. In an industry driven by rampant mis-selling, abounding selfish interest, and shoddy, inexpert advice rendered by people unqualified to do so, First Global has stood out, through its neutral, unbiased, deep- data driven investment tech.

  • Top 10 Wealth Management Advisors - 2021

    Sometimes everyday chores take up so much of our centre, we do not spend enough time thinking about the big picture for instance will you have enough to retire or even better retire early? Will you live your golden age in a resort beach town or choose to live near the mountains? Or if you have entrepreneurial aspirations. Those are all life sized questions that need complete answers. It’s never too early or late to start out planning for the future. Actively designing for retirement is one of the best choices you'll create once when it comes to meeting your financial goals. You wouldn’t put off seeking medical care for health issues, so why would you put off thinking about the financial health of your future? Financial planning can be massive and there are a lot of options to think about if you are looking for some guidance when starting a plan for retirement. One option is to invest with a wealth advisor (or manager), who can help sharp your financial strategy. A wealth management advisor uses the different financial disciplines such as financial and accounting, and tax services, investment advice, legal or estate planning, and retirement planning, to manage a client's wealth as a package of services. Wealth management is different from investment advice. The former is a more person-centered approach in which a single manager coordinates all the services needed to manage their money and plan for the client's needs, including the current and future needs of the client's family. Wealth management services are usually appropriate for wealthy individuals who have a broad arrangement of different needs. The advisors are high-level professionals and experts. In this issue of the CEO Insights magazine, a list of ‘Top 10 Wealth Management Advisors - 2021’ is provided to the readers in different sectors, for informing the excellent services by the wealth management advisors. The listing is prepared by a team of industry veterans, CEOs and VCs, and the CEO Insights magazine editorial team.
