About Sahil Vakil, CFP®, CFA®

Sahil Vakil is the Founder & CEO of MYRA Wealth – a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) in NY/NJ that provides Personal Finance services to International & Multicultural individuals in the United States – a large majority of whom are 1st & 2nd generation immigrants.

As a 1st Generation Immigrant himself, Sahil is on a mission to make MYRA Wealth the “home away from home” for this vibrant and thriving International & Multicultural community. “Aliens,” as he (and the IRS code) lovingly calls them, are the heartbeat of America, and Sahil seeks to make a meaningful impact in their lives.

Sahil currently holds several leadership roles in the Financial Planning and Investment Management industry, including serving on the Advisory Board at XYPN, the Diversity & Inclusion Committee(s) at NAPFA, ACP & XYPN, and the Pro Bono Committee at 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 was recently accepted into the Forbes New York Business Council, and was recently named as a 40 Under 40, by InvestmentNews. Finally, Sahil is among a few select entrepreneurs in this world, that have been selected by Y Combinator (a world-renowned American accelerator) to participate in their YC Start Up School program.

Prior to MYRA Wealth, Sahil served as a Management Consultant to the Financial Services industry, advising CEOs and CFOs at Fortune 500 firms on Business Strategy and Financial Management. Sahil holds an MBA from The Wharton School, a Masters in Electrical (& Aerospace) Engineering from USC, and a Bachelor’s in Electrical Engineering (& Computer Science) from the University of Mumbai. He is also a CFA Charter holder and a CFP Certificate holder.

Outside of MYRA Wealth, Sahil is an avid cricket fan and enjoys traveling the world with his wife and daughter (Myra). Fun Fact: Sahil & his wife were cast on HGTV’s House Hunters: ‘Buying on a Budget in Manhattan’ episode.
