Sandra Navidi – breakfast in New York with “Mrs. Wallstreet”

13. May 2015 – Katharina Schlangenotto

Even in trendy New York, you would take a second look. Sandra Navidi is an appearance for sure, not only because of her stunning looks but also because of her positive aura. She has an enormous presence, speaks a clear language and obviously is a performer. Her thinking is quick, she analyses facts within seconds and too much talk is not her thing. Oliver Stoldt meets her again after she moderated the Swiss Finance Forum in 2013.

From the German province to the Big Apple

After her law studies in Cologne, Paris and New York, she started as consultant at Deloitte & Touche before she was appointed Director of Research Strategies and Senior Relationship Manager at Roubini Global Economics (RGE) in 2009. Her boss at the time, star economist Nouriel Roubini, predicted the outbreak of the financial crisis long before it actually happened. Two years later, power lady Navidi opened up her own business BeyondGlobal. Here, she and her team provide strategic consultancy to financial institutions and corporations seeking to optimally position themselves in international capital markets.

Her entrepreneurial spirit started when she was a kid. Her father, born in Persia, ran a Small Business in her hometown Mönchengladbach in Germany. She says that she is used to hard work. When she worked in her fathers company, her father expected from her to be first, to leave last, to treat employees with respect and not to play the role of a daughter.

“Capital preservation is key – and it will be hard enough!”

Success proves her right: today, she is among the most appreciated financial and economic experts with a great knowledge in politics and globalization. In her chosen hometown New York, she is right in the center of the financial and economical world. She is in touch with the big guys, from CEOs of global financial institutions to multinational companies, governments, global organizations up to the academic world. Regularly, she appears on screen of TV news channels such as NTV or gives interviews in financial and economic trade media.

Her topics as a speaker range from finance, business, the Wall Street, macroeconomic and geopolitical trends, insights to the US business, career, education, woman, networking and self-improvement. She is a master of transforming complex matters into understandable pieces and electrifies her audience.

Energizing and Thrilling

Sandra’s energy is amazing and thrilling, she is a true expert in her field and still never loses touch. Maybe that is due to her German routes. After breakfast, she announced, she would need to get some work done. On a Saturday? Of course, her work is her life. And she loves it.
