Aradhna is a 25-year veteran of Asian financial markets. She runs her family office out of Hong Kong and recently started Access Alts Asia, an Asia-dedicated investment club to allocate to high-alpha, unique Asian alternatives.
Aradhna’s career has seen several firsts. She ran one of the earliest family offices investing in Asian Alternative funds and helped build the first platform that brought together the then nascent Asian Alternative funds industry two decades back and tracked over 700 funds. Aradhna also conceptualized the first international-style “Sunshine Funds” database for China, as well as pioneered the first China-Global hedge fund Summit at the invitation of the Shanghai Mayor in 2013, facilitating the China government’s landmark QDLP Investments Program for global alternative funds.
Apart from her contribution to the world of Asian alternatives, Aradhna is passionate about women empowerment and education for all, having served on the committees of Teach for China, Sohn Conference, Move4Migrants and Youth Diabetes Action.
