Before joining WaterEquity, Light led Grameen Foundation’s impact investing strategy serving first as a fund manager and then as the Head of the Capital Management & Advisory Center. Prior to that, Light held executive-level positions in investment banking at UBS AG and in the nonprofit sector at the Clinton Health Access Initiative. He received his B.A with honors from the University of Michigan in Quantitative Economics, holds an MBA in Finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, and is a chartered financial analyst.
