Seema Hingorani Joins Morgan Stanley
Seema Hingorani, entrepreneur and former CIO and the New York City pension plan, has joined Morgan Stanley Investment Management as Managing Director, Bloomberg reported.
Hingorani will help oversee relationships with the investment manager’s largest clients and create a new training program to develop talent, Bloomberg reported, citing a Morgan Stanley memo.
In 2015, Hingorani founded Girls Who Invest as a way to get more women involved in portfolio management and leadership at asset management firms. As Hingorani told Markets Media, the remit was to build a pipeline of talented, vetted women who are excited about going into asset management, across all asset classes including allocators of capital.
Nearly 700 U.S. university students have participated in Girls Who Invest’s on-campus summer intensive program and online intensive program since 2016, according to the organization’s website.
Hingorani is on the Advisory Board of Markets Media’s Women in Finance Awards program and is a previous award winner.
