Mr. Investment Professional

About Me:

I am a dual African / European national passionate about using private capital to unlock development opportunities in emerging markets. Formerly in investment banking in both London and the Middle East, now currently working at a top DFI (think World Bank/IFC, EBRD etc.) focused on investments in the infrastructure sector in emerging markets.

Details:

Undergrad School: Top 5 UK University

Undergrad Major: Philosophy

GPA: 3.7 (rough conversion)

GMAT: Not Yet Taken

Age: 28,  Ethnicity: Asian or Indian

Extracurriculars: Closely involved in two charities/initiatives in my native country in Africa, focused on improving the lives of street children and their access to basic amenities and education.

Work History:

Title: Investment Professional

Industry: Banking & Finance

Company: Top Firm

Length of Employment: 2 yrs

Title: Investment Banking Analyst

Industry: Banking & Finance

Length of Employment: 3 yrs

Big Life Wins:

Professional wins include being selected out of 2000 candidates for my current role, and having since been part of structuring some of the most innovative and transformative transactions in the region (with two of my deals winning industry awards). Personal life wins include getting married and starting a family in this time!

Post MBA Goal:

My goal is to use an MBA from a top school to transition into another emerging markets private equity fund, either still focusing on infrastructure or other sectors. I would like to move to a more traditional returns-focused fund, and an MBA is very useful in facilitating that move.
