Mrs. Suramanjari Elangovan
Achiever's Success Story
Mrs. Suramanjari Elangovan’s inspiring professional journey
Suramanjari a.k.a Manju is the Director and Co-Founder of the Wealth Management firm, Wealth Works Capital. One of the favourite quotes of Manju has been, “The secret of success is to do the common thing uncommonly well” by John D. Rockefeller Jr. This has been her mantra over the last 22 years of her professional journey. Hard work, sincerity and determination are the qualities about her that have been always admired by her clients, which is what has brought her thus far and will also take her further from here.
Manju is a Senior Private Banker and Wealth Management expert, handling portfolios of some of the who’s who in the city of Chennai as well as a few prominent NRIs. However, her journey to the top had more humble beginnings. She started her professional journey in a law firm over two decades ago, scrutinizing property documents and working on title verifications for customers applying for loans at leading MNC Banks. This skill which she picked on earlier in her career, helps her a great deal even today when she works on large real estate transactions and legal related frame works. It is for this reason that her clients keep Manju by their side as a powerful asset to navigate critical financial decisions in terms of business expansion, succession planning and estate planning along with their wealth management needs. After gaining experience at the law firm, Manju moved on to enter the banking world and spent the next 15 years working for Standard Chartered Bank at various capacities in the Banking and Private Banking space. Her last role of employment before starting out on her own was as Senior Vice President with Anand Rathi Wealth Management. She has won several awards and national recognitions over the span of her illustrious career.
After nearly two decades in the financial services industry, she decided to start Wealth Works Capital along with her partners Vimalathithan and Sunjeet Sudhir. Her core belief when it comes to managing wealth is that an unbiased approach is what will serve the clients best, in the long run. She has always believed in serving her clients in a holistic manner where her firm is a one stop solution for all their investment related needs. Her warm and approachable personality makes her a go-to person for all her client dilemmas.
Manju believes that there is no substitute for hard work and she often encourages her colleagues and team member by saying ‘Work Hard till your name needs no introduction’. She looks at growth as a process, and learning from failures as a vital component to success.
Manju is a movie buff and when she is done working so hard, she likes to unwind with a good movie.
