After graduating with honors from the Wharton School, Anita J Patel, began her career in financial services with SEI Corporation. In SEI's pension consulting department, she worked with large corporate plan sponsors, endowments and foundations to develop their asset allocations, determine annual contribution amounts, evaluate their existing portfolio managers and conduct new manager searches. From there, she went to the global equity manager, Clay Finlay, where her role evolved from client services and performance measurement to emerging markets analysis and special projects. She continued working within institutional financial services in a variety of capacities.
The death of her father inspired Ms. Patel to redirect her financial education and experience to help families and smaller organizations maneuver their financial obstacles. As a Chartered Financial Analyst and Independent Financial Advisor, she brings knowledge gleaned from a decade of institutional financial services to the clients that generally lack that kind of access.
