Do you still come back to work with the same zeal, like you did when you started?
Yes! Work is all about passion.
Of course, one has to put in a lot of perspiration also, but finally, it all boils down to what you want to be known for. I would say that passion has only increased with each passing day as we dwell into newer and more path-breaking areas of our business.
Who is your role model in the business/entrepreneurial world and what have you learnt from the person?
I am fortunate to come from a family business background and that has enabled work ethics, strategy, employee and financial management being ingrained into my personality and character.
Being a minority woman in business made me work harder to prove myself.
The challenge to prove of my capabilities of founding and running a Fintech Company without formal technical education has been my biggest driver on Dalal or Wall Street.
How are you giving back to society (CSR, if any)?
We believe that giving back is a part of growth individually and as an organization. It reminds us to be humble, sympathetic and empathetic.
Taking care of our employees and their extended families is a very important part of the value of our organization, along with supporting various Indian political and religious charities in Pune.
We support schools and education facilities by periodically organizing fund-raising programs and events.
I have founded and support many organizations in NY, Pune, and Puerto Rico.
It allows us to connect to the local community and both benefit at large.
Some of the organizations I lead are:
- Founder, Fordham India Leadership Council
- Founder and President, The Act 20 22 Club of Puerto Rico
- Board of Director, Girls Scout of Suffolk, NY
- Board of Director, Indian Network of Eastern Long Island, NY
Apart from work, what else do you like to spend your time doing?
I have two wonderful grown-up kids. I very much enjoy spending time with them whenever their schedule permits. That is what I love the most.
As I travel so much I have friends and loved ones in many part of the world who I love to visit. My favorite places to travel are France and Italy.
Besides these, working on new projects with new areas of focus and testing my personal limits and intelligence is something that drives me the most.
What are the achievements and milestones of the company?
In less than a decade, Arya Risk is known in financial sector as a provider of reliable products & services on the trading side. Our quest for constant innovation and groundbreaking services & solutions has gained many accolades and recognition from our clients.
Creating a multi-location organization in such a short period of time and seamlessly integrating all the offices gives me a lot of satisfaction.
I believe we are at the cusp of taking the fruits of the hard work in our initial years to the next level.
I am extremely excited about the launch of our new products. This will allow us to tap into the broader customer base and bring us into a wider spectrum of growth.
What does the future hold for the company?
The company first started with developing software & then simultaneously moved on to various trading solutions. We have been at the forefront of all major market changes.
This experience allows us to respond to market fundamentals and quantitative changes and adapt quickly.
In addition, we are launching our own product line of Alpha Tools & Technologies for various sectors such as Wealth Management, News Aggregation, Real Estate, and Twitter News.
We want to continue to expand our expertise in Currency and other markets. This is the kind of challenge that drives us at the core.
Lastly, what message would you like to give to the readers of the Business Connect magazine?
Business Connect is a very influential magazine in Indian Business Sector. In this day of false & fake news, the readers need to know & trust the sources. Business Connect is one of those & they have made a wise choice.
