Marzee was felicitated and congratulated by President of the Institute, Vada Dastoorji Khurshed Dastoor, Head Priest of Iranshah, Udvada and Nadir Godrej, Managing Director of Godrej Industries. Marzee was unanimously chosen by the Athornan Institutes Committee based on his All-Round Achievements in Academics, Excellence in his Profession and dedication to Community Service.
Speaking to Parsi Times, Marzee said, “I was indeed very happy and felt very proud to share the dais with the stalwarts of this community. This prestigious honor further validates the goodwill and credibility that my Financial Planning and Wealth Management firm, Niveshindia, enjoys within the community. I would like to thank the most reputed Athornan Mandal Institute committee members for this honour. I dedicate this award to my father, Maidhyomah Kerawala, as it was on his insistence that I was admitted to this esteemed institute and went on to achieve personal and professional successes, culminating into this cherished award, on my father’s 68th birthday!
Marzee Kerawala started his full-time financial advisory in January 2008. From then to August 2013 was a difficult time for financial planning professionals as equity markets were sluggish, but in this very time period, when more than 14000 IFA’s shut their shop, Marzee scaled his business to new highs and is currently reckoned as one of India’s top practicing IFAs, managing assets worth over USD 2 Billion!
A leading Certified Financial Planner, who has embraced the power of technology, Marzee spends a lot of his time reading, attending trainings, seminars, conferences and public talks to keep himself updated on the latest trends. Parsi Times is privileged to have him in our team of acclaimed columnists. His office is decorated with awards that recognize his professional growth and advisory excellence. On 27th July, 2018, NiveshIndia was awarded for ‘Outstanding Performance in Equity and SIP’ in Goa.
