Malini Saba is one the top female investors and philanthropists. I believe she is one of the women who have understood the importance of hard work and determination. Malini has stood out to be one of the famous business women in the business world. This is because of her tireless efforts to make it no matter the challenges or difficulties she faced. Malini is the founder of Saban. Saban has over the years had enormous investment interests in various companies spread out across the world. The company has made investments in the US particularly in its technology companies. In Australia, the company has made investments in its real estate sector and has also ventured into China and invested in its oil and gas industries.
Malini is passionate about helping people and has come up with organizations that seek to help women, children and the less fortunate in the society. In the year 2001, Malini founded a non-profit organization known as Stree: Global Investments in Women for the purpose of transforming the perception that women and children view themselves and reminding them that they are a fundamental part of the society. The organization provides access to legal empowerment, healthcare and public policy forums for women in Africa, Central America, Eastern Europe and India.
She has made numerous contributions to various charitable organizations. In the year 2005, she donated $1 million to help in the development of Heart Research Center at El Camino Hospital in California. I praise her for her efforts in bringing back to life areas that had been destroyed by the tsunami in 2004. Her career in investment began in the 1990s where she tirelessly invested in companies such as Sycamore Networks, Netscreen Technologies, and PayPal Inc.
Malini comes from Malaysia and is the current Chairperson of Saban. She was born to Sri Lankan parents who moved to Australia where she grew up and later moved to the US. Malini attended Stanford University where her husband was a lecturer. Malini’s website offers one a deep insight into the early life of Malini Saba and how she started from scratch before making it as one of the top women investors in the world.
She got into the investment world by what she describes as gate crashing an investment banker’s forum where she asked questions and got to know more about investment banking. This was the beginning
of her journey into the investment world. LinkedIn offers one a look at Malini Saba’s professional and philanthropist profile over the years.
