NEW YORK June 15, 2019
Sahil Vakil, Founder and CEO of MYRA Wealth™, a firm that provides personal finances services to international and multicultural individuals in the United States, has been accepted into the Forbes New York Business Council, an invitation-only growth and networking organization for successful business owners and leaders in Greater New York City.
Vakil was vetted and selected by a review committee based on the depth and diversity of his experience. Criteria for acceptance includes a track record of successfully impacting business growth metrics, as well as personal and professional achievements and honors.
Vakil currently holds several leadership roles in the Financial Planning and Investment Management industry, including serving on the Advisory Board at XY Planning Network (XYPN); the Diversity & Inclusion Committee(s) at The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), The Alliance of Comprehensive Planners (ACP) and XYPN; and the Pro Bono Committee at Financial Planning Association (FPA). He also serves as a mentor on the CFP® Board Mentor Program, as an experimental partner on the CFA Institute Driving Change initiative, and as a volunteer to the IRS VITA Program. He is also among a few select entrepreneurs in this world, that have been selected by Y Combinator (a world renowned American accelerator) to participate in the YC Startup School program.
“We are honored to welcome Sahil Vakil into the community,” said Scott Gerber, founder of Forbes Councils, the collective that includes Forbes New York Business Council. “Our mission with Forbes Councils is to bring together proven leaders from every industry, creating a curated, social capital-driven network that helps every member grow professionally and make an even greater impact on the business world.”
As an accepted member of the Council, Vakil has access to a variety of exclusive opportunities designed to help him reach peak professional influence. He will connect and collaborate with other respected local leaders in a private forum and at members-only events. Vakil will also be invited to work with a professional editorial team to share his expert insights in original business articles on Forbes.com, and to contribute to published Q&A panels alongside other experts.
“I’m humbled and honored to be included in the Forbes community. We’re excited to continue providing value to the immigrant community in the United States, and, with the help of Forbes, hope to further cement our leadership role in the community and in the industry,” said Vakil.
“MYRA Wealth is home to the vibrant and thriving international and multicultural community in the United States. ‘Aliens’, as the IRS code lovingly calls them, are the heartbeat of America, and MYRA Wealth seeks to make a meaningful impact in their lives. And we don't just mean financial impact. We look at other factors as well, like the improved standard of living, realized for our clients through better financial planning and investment management. Or, a sense of security and belonging via robust estate planning and immigration advisory. Or, the peace of mind and feeling of calm, knowing that MYRA Wealth's got our clients’ backs during the dreaded tax preparation and filing season,” added Vakil.
“International and multicultural families make America stronger. Immigrant families makes us more prosperous. Diversity positions America to lead in the 21st century. No other nation in the world welcomes so many new arrivals. No other nation constantly renews itself, refreshes itself with the hopes, drive, optimism, and dynamism of each new generation of international and multicultural families. International and multicultural families are one of the reasons that America is exceptional. Diversity and inclusion are why, even after two centuries, America is always young, always looking to the future, and always confident that our greatest days are still to come. For several generations immigrants have helped build our nation and its economy – now we’re here to help!” said Vakil.
