Chatham managing partner Amol Dhargalkar describes his personal journey and his vision of the future of finance.
This episode of NeuGroup’s Strategic Finance Lab podcast stars Amol Dhargalkar, the managing partner, board chairman and global head of the corporates sector at Chatham Financial—the risk advisory firm where he has spent more than two decades, his entire working career. You can hear his interview with NeuGroup founder and CEO Joseph Neu now on Apple and Spotify.
- Chatham helps corporations develop strategies to hedge their exposures to foreign exchange, interest rates and commodities—often using derivatives. It offers a cloud-based technology platform called ChathamDirect used for risk-analysis calculations, asset valuations, and to streamline accounting and reporting.
Amol sat down with Joseph in mid-October at Chatham’s campus in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania during a busy week: Chatham sponsored and hosted a NeuGroup meeting of assistant treasurers, and announced the acquisition of EA Markets, a capital markets investment banking firm.
- That deal is just the latest of Amol’s achievements at Chatham; he was named chairman in May of 2022, another sign of his drive and determination. He tells Joseph he only has two speeds—not doing something, or going all the way—both at work and in personal pursuits like running.
- But as you’ll hear, he firmly believes that work and running are team sports. For him, working with colleagues to serve clients paves the road to individual growth and achievement. “We’re not the star of the show, the client’s the star of show,” he said. “We’re there to just come alongside them as a partner and help them achieve whatever their capital markets goals are.”
