Chief Investment Officer of SevenStep Capital Seema Hingorani

The weekly Power Women podcast has featured Judge Judy, Pat DiMango of “Hot Bench,” Julie Menin and other women who have achieved success.

This week, host Victoria Schneps-Yunis interviews Seema Hingorani — the founder and chief investment officer of SevenStep Capital, and the founder and chairwoman of Girls Who Invest, a do-good organization dedicated to increasing the number of women in portfolio management and leadership positions within the asset-management industry — on an all-new episode.

During the podcast, Hingorani — an honoree at Schneps Media’s upcoming “WOW: Women of Wall Street” event — discusses her parents’ unique immigrant story, growing up in a high-achieving family, and how she helps women get involved in investing.

Hingorani also tells Schneps-Yunis about what inspired her to start Girls Who Invest, which she formed after noticing a dearth of women in positions within investment companies.

“I didn’t realize how bad it was,” she said. “I asked every single one of these men who run these firms, and everybody told me they don’t get resumes from women. So I thought, maybe we do have pipeline problem, and let’s fix that.”
