world. The sum of our pain is unbelievable."
A loving husband and well-respected professional,
Anil's life was tragically ended on September 11, 2001.
He was at the World Trade Center's north tower attending

Anil Bharvaney was senior vice president
of equities trading for Instinet
Corporation, which pioneered the electronic stock
trading industry more than 30 years ago. Anil was responsible
primarily for building electronic bridges from Instinet
to stock exchanges around the world to buy and sell
stocks on behalf of Instinet's clients. He also oversaw
all stock and trading information, and was responsible
for building synergies between various departments and
groups of the organization.
Anil was a man of integrity, loved and
respected by colleagues, business associates, staff,
family and friends. He was intelligent and soft-spoken.
When Anil spoke it was always worth listening. You learned
something from his insight," commented co-worker
Kathy Colloton. Anil was kind and thoughtful. "It
is rare that any of us can ever say that we have known
someone who was truly a good person, someone who operated
entirely without malice, without selfishness, and whose
overriding consideration was always for the well-being
and convenience of others," observed Mark Howarth,
a coworker and close friend.
Born in India, raised in Japan and educated
in Canada and the United States, Anil met his wife,
Po, at New York University, where he received an M.B.A.
Anil traveled globally a great deal. He "was truly
a citizen of the world," stated Mike Meehan, a
good friend for many years.
Music was a passion of Anil's. He played
trumpet and an electric keyboard when he was younger,
and listening to CDs was a relaxing hobby for him. When
traveling, Anil carried his Walkman and mini CDs with
his favorite pieces, and he picked up new music as well.
He loved jazz, American and Japanese pop music, and
much more. "His hearing was so acute," Po
recollected. "That's one reason why he spoke so
Anil also loved photography. While in
high school, he tutored other students to earn money
to purchase his first camera, a Nikon, which still takes
terrific pictures. "I was always his assistant
when we went picture taking" Po, laughed, "I
carried the bags and equipment!" Anil had planned
to set up a darkroom in their home.
Anil was a humble man who influenced many
people and touched many lives in his 41 short years.
He was a born leader and a mentor. Mike Meehan commented,
"Apart from my wife, Anil Bharvaney was the only
person on the planet that I trusted 100 percent."
Another colleague and close friend, Alain Leroux, added,
"Anil was a model and a friend for so many people
around the world. The sum of our pain is unbelievable."
Anil will be missed by everyone who knew
him. Po affirmed, "He was my best friend." The memorial
fund she has established in his name at Westminster
Conservatory of Music will keep his memory alive.
