    The Key Man: A Wakeup Call For Investors

    THE KEY MAN tells the story of a man who raised billions of dollars for investment by vowing to end global poverty through capitalism but ended up arrested on fraud, theft and racketeering charges and facing up to 291 years in jail.

    Arif Naqvi, the founder of Dubai-based private equity firm Abraaj, was a pioneering impact investor who claimed to seek out ways to make money and do good in the emerging markets of Asia, Africa and Latin America. Bill Gates invested $100 million in Arif’s $1 billion fund to build hospitals and clinics in poor countries. The World Bank and the American, British, and French governments also invested in this fund.

    The UN, Interpol, McKinsey, Harvard, LSE, KPMG, Bank of America and the World Economic Forum were among the elite organizations which backed Arif.

    First 50 registrations  are free. After that 25 Euros

    Time: 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM EDT(-04:00)
