Update: 2021-09-28


Technology and business over the past 20 years have seen such a quantum leap in innovation, that it’s about time we changed our strategies to match the present and future. No longer can we just focus on mastering one discipline, but rather find a way to weave topics like technology, science and finance, together.

Dr. Vinay Nair discusses with us today how through complex and creative contemplation, putting the customers needs and your employees growth ahead of the product is the new wave of thought that will lead to big results in these modern times.

A serial entrepreneur, investor, and academic, Dr.Vinay Nair has taught at several business schools, has a portfolio of venture investments and has started several companies in financial services.  He started his career as a finance faculty member at The Wharton School. After launching and managing a quantitative hedge fund which led him to start 55ip, which was successfully sold to JPMorgan Chase, he started TIFIN to tap into the potential that science and technology have to deliver better investor experiences and outcomes.

His 2008 book, “Investing for Change”, published by Oxford University Press, reflects his recognized expertise in the areas of sustainable and responsible investing. His academic background includes a Ph.D. in Financial Economics from the Stern School of Business at NYU with an award for the best thesis, and a Bachelor of Technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras with the Governor’s Gold Medal, an award for all-round excellence.
