Marigold’s leaders are impressively committed to building market-defining companies that change our communities for the better. The world needs more Marigold: market & community; financial & social; money and impact. For Marigold, that isn’t a 50-50 balance. It’s 100% each.Gerhard Pries, CEO, Sarona Asset Management

Across the last decade, Narinder designed and scaled two social ventures: as the Managing Director she built LEAP | Pecaut Centre for Social Impact, an innovator in venture philanthropy, and as the founding Executive Director of Rise Asset Development she provided an entrepreneurial path to employment for those with a history of mental health and addiction challenges.
