Koya partnered with NorthStar Asset Management on its Investor Advisor search. Our work resulted in the placement of Amrita Sankar.
Founded in 1990 as a socially responsible investment firm, NorthStar seeks to use creative shareholder engagement as a positive force for change. NorthStar’s mission is to provide integrative and effective portfolio management by connecting social concerns to stock selection, asset allocation, and activism.
Amrita Sankar is an impassioned young professional dedicated to redirecting flows of capital in ways that solve global challenges. Sankar brings several years of experience from the impact investing sector, working with organizations such as RSF Social Finance, Elevar Equity, and ImpactAssets.
Prior to NorthStar, Sankar worked for several years on the Investments Team of ImpactAssets, a $1B donor-advised fund that allows clients to make investments that are focused on social and environmental returns through their charitable assets.
During graduate school, Sankar had the opportunity to expand her understanding of traditional finance through internships at several firms, including Elevar Equity, RSF Social Finance, and Goldman Sachs Asset Management.
