Lafayette Square, an impact-driven, minority-owned investment platform, has hired Ommeed Sathe as head of strategy. In this new role, Sathe will lead various thematic impact-driven investment strategies within Lafayette Square.
Sathe was previously the head of the impact investment unit at Prudential, where he managed over $1 billion across a range of alternative asset classes and investment strategies. At Prudential, he made investments in transformative urban developments, affordable housing REITs, social impact bonds, and emerging managers.
“We are excited to have Ommeed join the Lafayette Square team to drive strategic initiatives for the firm,” said Damien Dwin, founder and CEO of Lafayette Square. “Ommeed’s experience will be instrumental to our efforts to build localized and scaled investment solutions that serve the needs of communities and confront critical societal challenges.”
“I’m honored to lead Lafayette Square’s strategic efforts to build a premier impact-investing company,” said Sathe. “I’ve seen first-hand the need for thoughtful solutions at scale and that true impact requires a model that can span multiple asset classes and integrate thoughtful services with place-based capital.”
