Inspiring Woman Of The Day

Posted: August 6, 2012

With a strong interest in Bollywood movies, shopping, travelling and reading, Kalpana Morparia is a banker with a difference.

At 64, she has lead two important organizations in the country. Although she just wanted to grow up and have a large family replete with children and grandchildren, life had other plans for her. Kalpana Morparia, today is the Chief Operating Officer of one of the leading organizations in the world – J P Morgan.

After giving more than 30 years of dedicated service to ICICI, she switched to J P Morgan and has immensely contributed to the planning and investment strategies of the organization.

Not one to contemplate hanging up her boots yet, she believes in living life to the fullest. She never misses an opportunity to vacation and is also quite a book addict – some of her favourite authors being Robert Ludlum and Georgette Heyer.

Giving a boost to the mutual funds business in India, Kalpana Morparia has some effective investment tips up her sleeves to help India climb up the financial ladder.

Why we find her inspiring:

– For being an inspiration to other women who want to make it big in Finance.

– For not being a workaholic. It’s refreshing to meet someone who holds an enviable position, but still has a life beyond work.
