About our Speaker:

Peter Tropper recently retired as Chief Investment Officer in IFC's Private Equity Group, which had commitments of more than $3.0 billion in over 180 private equity funds plus investments in two dozen fund managers, all dedicated exclusively to emerging markets. In this role, Mr. Tropper ran IFC’s program for funds that invest in small and medium enterprises and frontier markets.

He now advises fund managers and institutional investors on private equity fund formation and governance issues. He has worked on more than 200 funds, served on several advisory committees, and often speaks at industry conferences.

Prior to 2001, he was the HQ "anchor" for the supervision work of IFC’s South Asia Department, with a portfolio of 100 companies in the financial sector. Until September 1999, Mr. Tropper served in IFC’s Latin America and Caribbean Department, where he was responsible for identifying and structuring IFC’s investments in the financial sector in the Caribbean and Chile, and for recommending investment strategies that contribute to the development of the region’s capital markets.

Mr. Tropper also served as the first head of IFC’s Emerging Markets Data Base unit, which has since been sold to Standard & Poor’s. Mr. Tropper joined IFC in 1984, after several years as Deputy Director of the Northeast- Midwest Institute in Washington, D.C. Mr. Tropper has a B.A. from Yale University, an MBA from the University of Maryland, and a Master’s in International Affairs from the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS).
