Hansi Mehrotra brandishes financial literacy with her popular blog TheMoneyHans, while leading investment rhetoric with incisive and much-needed expertise on finance.
A financial consultant who went from Unnao in Uttar Pradesh to enter the august halls of finance, if anything, Hansi was determined to crunch numbers.
Today, with 20 years of experience, her financial services include setting up online tools for investment research and consulting on wealth management. Hansi has a certificate on private wealth from Wharton/Institute for Private Investors (IPI) and the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) charter from CFA Institute.
She has set up and led the wealth management segment for Mercer’s in Australia, the Investment Consulting business based in Australia and Singapore, and was a consultant on the National Pension System.
It’s her inexhaustible urge to consume the intricate world of finance that led her, early on, to ask 10 CEOs out for tea, to pick their brains. One agreed and three responded, and she is the wiser. Today, Hansi has gone on to create her niche as a reputed financial advisor.
Knowing the inner workings of investment and stocks might be ‘Greek’ to many, but for Hansi, it was what she excelled in, and has since made it her goal to post, write, and podcast to educate others on the finer aspects of investment. Her partnership with Franklin Templeton led to the podcast series Meri Pyaari Saheliyan, and with Yahoo, it led to a video series #AskHansi on personal finance and investing. With simple language, she empowers women and guides and mentors through her platforms - be it what she learnt from her girlfriends about money management or for that matter on the L&T mutual fund.
As a regular on LinkedIn and the twitter verse, she was TopVoice and PowerProfile for India in 2018, and LinkedIn PowerProfile for Finance in India in 2017. “Be MoneyConfident, Ladies,” she says, as she embarks on busting myths and creating financial literacy.
