Finance Engagement & Water Risk Valuation Lead
Dharisha hails from the finance industry and leads CWR’s engagements related to Water Risk Valuation. She joined the team as she believes that climate and water factors are downplayed by the financial sector. Since joining she has published reports with Manulife Asset Management, the Asia Investor Group on Climate change, and CLSA on how water and climate risks could impact investment portfolios and how to take action to tackle these before it’s too late. She has also spoken at multiple finance conferences and conducted meetings with investors on water and climate risks in Asia. Dharisha hopes to help build consensus on how to value water risks, bridge the gap between finance and science, and engage with investors to incorporate these risks. This could also lead to innovative Green Finance instruments becoming more prevalent.
Prior to joining CWR, Dharisha worked in the investment team of a long-only public equities fund. She has also worked in the impact investment space in London and Singapore, where she provided technical assistance to social enterprises, helped them raise equity investments, and managed a debt portfolio.
