Two London Business School graduates have been named in Management Today’s (MT) 2019 '35 Women Under 35' list.

The annual list is intended to “shine a light on the country’s future female business leaders”, MT says.

Amrita Srivastava (MBA2015) is director of business development at Mastercard; Ayesha Ofori (MBA2012) is founder of Axion Property Partners.

Srivastava worked at Citi and AT Kearney prior to taking on her current position at Mastercard. As part of her role, the 34-year-old oversees the credit giant’s fintech and B2B payments in Western Europe.

“She is spearheading a project to find and support more female-led fintech start-ups – and aims to turn it into a global initiative across Mastercard,” MT reports.

Ayesha Ofori worked for Goldman Sachs prior to starting Axion Property Partners, a property investment firm. Ofori also established Axion Academy to teach “under-represented groups about property investment”.

Her other projects include the Black Property Network and PropElle.
