WL Ross senior director Rohina Bhandari killed by shark while scuba diving in Costa Rica


WL Ross senior director Rohina Bhandari has reportedly been killed by a shark while scuba diving off the coast of Costa Rica.

Bhandari was identified by friends as the American tourist who attacked by a tiger shark, according to New York Daily News.

Bhandari undertook a number of roles during her career. She started off as an assistant relationship manager at Credit Suisse before being promoted to associate product management.

After enjoying a three year stint there, Bhandari moved on to become the managing director of institutional sales at PineBridge Investments. She worked in the role for seven years before moving on to WL Ross & Co where she became senior director.

During her career, Bhandari raised $1.2bn in alternative investments and rebuilt a number of businesses.

Invesco spokesman Jeaneen Terrio told AltAssets in an email, “We were saddened to learn of the death of our friend and colleague Rohina. We ask that everyone respect the privacy of her family during this difficult time.”

WL Ross & Co was founded in 1997 by professionals from Rothschild. It is now run by Greg Stoeckle and Stephen Toy. It employs 57 people with $308m in general partner commitments.
