Numerix, a leader in capital markets risk management technology, is thrilled to introduce Jhanvi Shah as the recipient of this year's 20,000 USD Women in Finance Scholarship. The annual scholarship is awarded to one woman pursuing her advanced degree in finance.
Shah will use her scholarship towards a master's in Financial Asset Management from the Schulich School of Business, York University. Shah was chosen from over 100 applicants. This will be Shah's second master's degree; she also obtained a CFA level II certification.
"My interest in the capital markets and risk management arises from the dynamic nature of global financial systems, the need for informed decision-making, and the desire to contribute to financial stability. I am eager to deepen my knowledge, refine my skills, and make a positive impact in these critical areas of the industry," explained Shah.
Shah is a champion for supporting women pursuing finance careers, especially in India, where she is from. While discussing her future, she told the Numerix team, "I envision myself as a dynamic financial entrepreneur in India, leading my own firm where I successfully drive growth while at the same time advocating for diversity and inclusion in the industry."
"We are thrilled to award this scholarship to Jhanvi Shah," said Helen He, who runs the program for Numerix. "She is smart, driven, and already extraordinarily accomplished. We are honored to help accelerate her already successful path into a career in finance or the capital markets."
