An active participant in the financial markets for the last 20 years, Vikram Mansharamani's experience includes positions in management consulting, investment banking, and asset management


Dr. Mansharamani is a Senior Fellow at the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business & Government at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Dr. Mansharamani is a Lecturer at Yale University in the Program on Ethics, Politics & Economics.

As a regular advisor to endowments, foundations, sovereign wealth funds, and family offices, Dr. Mansharamani combines his 20+ years of practical investing experience with his theoretical understanding of complex dynamics to help with matters of asset allocation, investment strategy, manager selection, and portfolio management.

"Easily one of the best I've seen, Vikram's presentation was a clear standout among the dozens of conferences I've attended over my twenty years in the investment industry. I found his conversational style remarkably engaging and his perspectives the most innovative and fresh-thinking I've seen to date. His message was thought-provoking, informative, and I'd even say inspired; a rare combination indeed."
