It was our honor to host Mr. Alan Beard, who leads Interlink Capital Strategies a management-consulting and private equity firm. He provided insights on the role of emerging markets in driving global growth, the concept of global export credit and the work done by Development Financial Institutions among various other topics. It was an interactive session where he discussed case studies and answered various interesting questions that the students had. One of the students wrote “His discussion of the variety of risks that inhibit cross-border capital flows, which are especially prevalent in the emerging and frontier markets, helped me contextualize and better understand the domain in which Interlink Capital Strategies operates and their institutional obstacles.”
