Alexandra was born and raised in Hong Kong before studying Political Economics at Bates College in the US. A catalytic program that ignited her interest in sustainable finance was the study that examined social justice and its manifestation in politics, economics, and the environment in Argentina, Spain, and South Africa. This, together with her work experience at a UK hedge fund and a US financial communications firm deepened her awareness of the growing cracks in the foundations of global development and growth and cemented her pursuit of a career in sustainable finance. As an intern at CWR, she is excited to explore development through a water lens and is working on projects related to assessing and communicating water-related climate risks. Going forward, Alexandra hopes to create impactful change in the environment through finance.
