A Conversation with Simon Clark, WSJ Reporter and Author of THE KEY MAN - A True Story on Private Equity

November 2, 2021, 5:30 pm–7:00 pm EDT

The Key ManJoin the PE/VC Club and their co-hosts for a moderated discussion with Simon Clark.

Simon is a Wall Street Journal reporter, based in London, and coauthor of THE KEY MAN, a new book published by HarperCollins about the rise and fall of Abraaj, once the largest emerging markets private equity firm. It's a dramatic tale which unfolds across global cities, from New York and London to Dubai, Istanbul and Karachi. It features Bill Gates, John Kerry, broken promises on impact investing and ESG commitments and (after our journalism exposed financial problems in the Wall Street Journal) criminal indictments from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The book has been positively reviewed in The Economist, Financial Times, Sunday Times, Guardian, Reuters, New York Post and elsewhere, and it has already been listed for two major literary prizes.
