"Asha Mehta provides a powerful exposition of how our global sustainability challenges are also the biggest opportunities for capital markets to fund the needed solutions."
“Most investors miss opportunities in new markets simply because they are unaware of them. Asha will tell you how to make money in these markets before they have even emerged.”
“Asha Mehta demonstrates not only why we need to invest in women, but also how our industry benefits from the combination of analytical rigor and global understanding of human behavior that women investors, like Asha, bring to the table.”
“In her epic journey from UP to the UN, Asha Mehta presents a brave and bold vision that investors and business leaders alike should consider. Power of Capital knits together the interplay of financial returns, sustainability, the empowerment of women in the workplace and society, and the role of technology.”
“A revolution is occurring in the emerging world. Geopolitics, technology, and sustainability are upending the established order. Provocative and pioneering, Asha Mehta’s Power of Capital will help you make sense of it all.”
“We live in an era of unremitting geopolitical crises alongside vast pools of institutional wealth. Power of Capital, Asha Mehta’s optimistic and perceptive new book, reveals how and why investment capital offers an opportunity to build a sustainable ecosystem that we dare not waste.”
“A fascinating book by a pioneer of sustainable finance in emerging market economies. It is a first-hand account of her journey through some of the hottest, emerging markets, how she learned to operate and invest successfully in them, and ultimately how private capital can help fight climate change.”
“This book tells the story of a headstrong young woman traveling the world. From traveling in India with no male chaperone, to Saudi Arabia with no head covering, she makes it all look easy. This is a book you will not want to miss, nor put down once you pick it up."
A note from Asha
“My goal is that you’ll walk away from Power of Capital with a greater understanding of today’s emerging markets, with trust in the returns these markets can bring you, with a knowledge of how sustainability can align with the current economic framework, and with inspiration to travel the world and see these markets with your own eyes.”
