Becoming one of the world’s top investors can be accomplished by an intelligent businessperson, but Malini Saba is much more than that, she is one of the world’s most passionate philanthropists, and it is this title that she prefers. Ms. Saba is from South Asia, and she is founder and Chairman of Saban, an international investment company that holds a variety of interests including Chinese oil and gas companies, land opportunities in Australia and India, and high-tech companies in the U.S.
These substantial investments have taken Malini to the top of the investment industry, but she is more proud of the non-profit organization called “Stree: Global Investments in Women.” Stree is a company for women to advance, and it focuses on improving the way low-income women and children from across the globe look at themselves. Malini began this incredible organization to help these groups of women see themselves in a positive light, so they can function in society.
“Stree” enables women to obtain health care, legal support and it provides a means for grassroots movements in Africa, Central America, India and Eastern Europe to meet unite with established public policies for a better tomorrow.
In all areas of her career, Malini attributes her level of success to the fact that she is not afraid to take risks to get ahead. She says that in the past 10 years, she has taken great risks, and they have paid off incredibly.

Today, she has extensive investments in several countries, which have lead her to be a billionaire who sees a responsibility to help and encourage those in need.
