Q&A: SAIS’s Roger Leeds Discusses PE in Emerging Markets
February 23, 2015
Emerging market countries may well represent the greatest opportunity for growth in the private equity industry over the coming years, and we've already seen PE investing in developing countries expand since the global financial crisis. But what are the risks involved in such investments? And how can GPs take advantage of the risk/reward profile?
These issues and more were discussed in our recent Q&A with Roger Leeds, director of the Center for International Business and Public Policy at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) and the founder of the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association (EMPEA).
