Shilpa Giri

Delivery Lead, Commercial Lending

I have been associated with Acuity for the past 6+ years. From a young ambitious girl to a working mother now, my journey atAcuity has been extremely enriching, with lots of learning and career development. With the support of wonderful colleagues and mentors, I have grown not only as a professional, but also as an individual. I never had second thoughts about returning to work at an organisation like Acuity after maternity leave. Their understanding, flexibility and commitment to providing work-life balance made re-joining simple and smooth. When writing this, I was wondering whether I experienced a disconnect for six months.? No, nothing had changed; it was that easy. I do not feel like a working mother, but rather like an empowered woman. My thanks to the leadership and the dedicated HR team for an incredible welcome.

Manisha Baid

Assistant Director, Commercial Lending

I first joined Acuity's Investment Banking(IB) team in 2010. It was a much smaller firm at the time, but the work was as challenging, and I spent over four years setting up and managing a number of IB client engagements. The entrepreneurial bug bit me subsequently, and I left the firm to start my own venture. Come 2018, I saw an opportunity to join Acuity's new and fast-growing Lending team. It was a quick decision since the opportunity was exciting and promised a lot of learning. It also meant that I would have many chances to experiment, make decisions and contribute to the growth of the vertical. I believe Acuity offers good career progression and a fair work-life balance and adopts employee-friendly policies.
