Student Affiliate Program

Are you interested in global finance, sovereign and public investment, or private equity? Perhaps you are intrigued by the role of governments and markets in financing national development? Or… are you pursuing a career in finance and interested in exploring where and how the public and private sectors meet?

In December 2017, we launched a Student Affiliate Program open exclusively to Fletcher students. This new program offers the opportunity to engage with a global community of scholars and practitioners, to contribute research, and to support both self-initiated and institutional programming on sovereign and public investment. Are you doing research on project finance, development finance, sustainability, social investment, or political risk? Join us to explore some the outer reaches of your research and interests.

Why should you be a Student Affiliate?

Charles Birts

Eight men own the same wealth as 3.6 billion people who make up the poorest half of humanity. I have a professional background in public-private partnerships and applying new innovative business techniques to unlock value addressing socio-economic problems. SovereigNET links my professional background with my field of study and allows practical industry learnings in alignment with my pursuant career interests.

Madhuri Mukherjee

I am very interested in impact investment; specifically to understand how financial capital from private capital markets, corporations and institutional investors can be allocated to fund social impact enterprises, maintain long term sustainable investment practices and manage non-traditional risks. Affiliation with SovereigNet provides me with a platform to explore how large scale institutional capital providers can co-invest and partner with other stakeholders in the impact investment industry to build a sustainable investments ecosystem.
