Anil Jethmal has more than 25 years of experience in the fields of investment and finance. Anil Jethmal prepared for his career by studying economics at Bowdoin College in Maine.

With a history dating back more than 200 years, Bowdoin College was chartered in 1794 and matriculated its first class in 1802, with just eight students enrolling. At the time the students met in Boston, and in 1804, James Bowdoin III decided to honor his father by endowing the school in the district of Maine, which was still a part of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Over the years, Bowdoin College went on to educate some of the brightest writers in the country, including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Nathaniel Hawthorne, both of whom graduated in the class of 1825.

Today, Bowdoin College consistently ranks among the top 10 colleges in the nation, and it continues to offer a liberal arts education that challenges students intellectually and pushes them to take risks under the guidance of an accomplished faculty of artists and scholars.
