What’s in a name?
A name could be anything. But it becomes everything if it reflects character. We believe in keeping things simple and transparent. Our clients must have complete clarity about our work. Hence, the word ‘Aban’ which means lucid/clear. “Will” is the faculty by which a person initiates action. We are willing to go the extra mile in offering evidence-based solutions to our clients. In our logo, The accent stroke above ‘W’, is a symbolic representation of a hand with a golden card – the successful completion of a task which has express value for the client.
Our philosophy is to be ‘on your side’
Our mandates revolve around services ancillary to wealth management, financial planning and estate planning. We have developed a completely unconflicted approach and work only on a consulting basis. We follow a behavioural coaching mechanism and do this by gradually cultivating habits in our clients and the next generation. All through, we constantly keep adding to our knowledge, skills and empathy. We also believe in sharing what we learn. Hence, we blog and write.
I first met Abaneeta when she came to our offices to facilitate an introduction with a former employer. Although she was well known to others in our system, it was the first time I interacted with her, and from the start she impressed me with how straightforward, honest & forthright she was. What started two years ago as a conversation on software evaluation has blossomed into a deeper relationship and even friendship and I continue to be struck by her transparency, commitment to her clients, her data driven approach and a passion for continuous learning. I know Abaneeta’s clients are in safe, trustworthy hands and I wish all the best to Abanwill for a wonderful future ahead.
Abaneeta is a thorough professional who knows her job very well and can customise her approach according to the precise requirement of the client. I am her second generation client and was particularly impressed with the way she handled smooth and efficient transmission of portfolios when my father passed away while I was based out of overseas. I have recommended that she does heir coaching workshops as that is her strength.
As regards portfolio management, she provides a birds eye view of the portfolio and highlights the key risks in a timely manner and from an independent and objective perspective. I would particularly like to mention the way she predicted the real estate bubble and the steps she has taken to avert a substantial loss in the portfolio. The overall investment cost has substantially reduced because of her transparent fee structure. I would strongly recommend Abaneeta to any potential investors and wish that her firm does very well in future.
“I have known Abaneeta for many years. She is truly an exceptional wealth manager/banker. She has an excellent grasp of the dynamics of both equity and debt markets. She has looked after our wealth and got us good returns over good times and difficult times. I really like her agility in responding to market dynamics. She herself has grown from strength to strength. Now, she has become a great friend and I often consult her or bounce off strategies with her and I always get sound advice.”
“Abaneeta is a very competent and committed professional. I have found her advice to be helpful and authentic. She is highly knowledgeable about the various aspects of investments. I wish her enterprise the very best.”
“I have worked with Abaneeta for over a decade and have found her to be dedicated, sincere and fiercely committed to her work. She has a good understanding of her clients, takes the time and has the patience to understand their requirements (and aspirations) rather than aggressively promoting products and schemes. I find this an important quality, lacking in many people in her profession. Abaneeta will listen, do her research and then come back with proposals that are relevant. She asks the right questions to ensure that she has a detailed understanding of expectations. She also has a knack of managing these expectations in a realistic manner.
In her profession, sincerity is a crucial characteristic and Abaneeta has this in abundance.Besides being true to her work, she has always looked out for the best interest of her customers even if sometimes it feels that her approach is different than the expectation. This is all a part of being realistic and grounded and not being swayed by popular opinion.
Over and above the work I find Abaneeta’s personal interests of reading, teaching and blogging an important part of her personality which not only defines her as a person but also helps her ability to provide a more detailed and appropriate research. I wish ABANWILL the very best.”
“I have known Abaneeta for a decade. She belongs to a rare breed of bankers: Those with the genuine desire to help clients be successful. Her own success is almost secondary to her. Having worked in the Financial Services industry myself, this attribute is what makes for an outstanding advisor vs a good one. And Abaneeta excels at this.I have recommended her to a couple of my friends – and banker recommendations are something I resist doing for all the right reasons.I would not hesitate to recommend her again. The field needs more professionals like her.”
