Brought up in Mumbai, Sayali has had an exposure right from the age of 3, when her mom started working as an accounting professional at a manufacturing firm. With parents from the Finance background, they always had discussions over the dinner table about all things finance. She went on to get a BSc in Finance and Marketing from NYU’s Stern School of Business and an MBA from Babson College. After completing her education, she took up a job as an analyst in the investment banking division of Citibank in Mumbai, but soon realized the corporate life was not for her and in 2 years quit her potentially career making job at Citi and set out to create something that she could call her own. Funnily enough, she was speaking to her girlfriends around a dinner table and realised how clueless her highly educated, talented friends were about personal finance. So she founded FinCocktail in August 2020. When she recognised the growing need of her content, she brought on Niyati, a long time friend of hers, to help her steer the ship and run FinCocktail together. By Jan 2021, Niyati and Sayali were a team trying to tackle the mammoth task of spreading financial literacy together through FinCocktail.
