Doing Well by Doing Good? Private Equity Investing in Emerging Markets
Speaker(s): Arif Naqvi
Chair: Professor Felda Hardymon
Recorded on 30 April 2013 in Old Theatre, Old Building.
The theme of the event is private equity’s role in the transformation of the world economy. As Western economies battle to restructure their economies and re-launch growth, South-South investment flows have been steadily growing over the last decade. Vast and exciting investment opportunities are opening up in these global growth markets, but is it really true that best in class returns and socially transformational investments can go hand in hand?
Arif Naqvi will give a keynote speech entitled 'Global Growth Markets: Transforming our world, our businesses, our communities'. The lecture will be followed by a panel discussion entitled ‘Doing well by doing good? Private Equity Investing in Emerging Markets’ led by Felda Hardymon with Tsega Gebreyses, Arif Naqvi and Diana Noble.
Arif Naqvi is the founder and group chief executive of The Abraaj Group, a private equity investor. Naqvi founded the Group in 2002 in Dubai. It started with $60 million in assets under management and today manages $7.5 billion.
