Head of Philanthropy Advisory, EMEA, J.P. Morgan Private Bank
Sheryl Fofaria is Head of Philanthropy Advisory for J.P. Morgan Private Bank in Europe and the Middle East; working to help clients become more effective in their philanthropy and advising on focus, strategy and governance as well as providing ongoing opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and collaboration.
Prior to joining J.P. Morgan, Sheryl spent six years in the equities division at UBS Investment Bank in London and Hong Kong, before pursuing her Masters degree in international development and joining a diversity-focused charity shortly thereafter. Here she spent two years running a flagship careers programme providing educational support and career access to talented young people from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds in the UK.
Sheryl read economics & management at Cambridge University and completed her postgraduate degree at the London School of Economics and Political Science. She is a member of the Ashoka Venture Board, as well as the Advisory Boards of BeyondMe, UnLtd India and a family foundation.
I’m honoured and excited to be shortlisted for this year’s award. Not only does the programme highlight the importance of nurturing and developing female talent, it is also empowering women to realise and leverage their full potential, become the strong and moral leaders the world needs, and inspire others to join this growing network of talented and successful women.
