Everest Capital partners with Condoleezza Rice and Stephen Hadley who will advise Investment committee

Thursday, October 14, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update – Everest Capital (“Everest”), an investment management firm focused on global and emerging markets, today announced a strategic advisory partnership with RiceHadley Group (“RiceHadley”), the consulting firm co-founded by former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and former U.S. National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley.

Both Dr. Rice and Mr. Hadley will provide ongoing counsel to Everest’s Investment committee on a broad range of political and economic subjects that shape the firm’s macro thematic strategies. In addition Rice Hadley’s principals will participate in Everest Capital’s Second Emerging Markets Forum scheduled for next spring in Miami.

“We are very excited about our partnership with RiceHadley. We expect that Condi’s geopolitical perspectives and Steve’s incisive views on crucial emerging markets such as India and Russia will be a strong addition to our extensive global research capabilities”, said Marko Dimitrijevic, Everest’s Founder and Chief Investment Officer.

Prior to co-founding RiceHadley, Dr. Rice served as the 66th Secretary of State of the United States from 2005-2009. From 2001 to 2005, she served as National Security Advisor. Additional highlights of her career include serving as provost of Stanford University and as Senior Director for Soviet and East European Affairs to President George H.W. Bush during the dissolution of the Soviet Union and German reunification. Dr. Rice received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Denver, her master’s degree from the University of Notre Dame, and her Ph.D. from the University of Denver.

Mr. Hadley served as National Security Advisor from 2005-2009, and as Dr. Rice’s deputy from 2001-2005. In addition to covering the full range of national security issues, he had special responsibilities for helping manage the China/Taiwan relationship, developing a strategic relationship with India, and conducting a strategic dialogue with Russia. From 1993 to 2001, Mr. Hadley was both a principal in The Scowcroft Group and a partner in the Washington D.C. law firm of Shea and Gardner (now Goodwin Proctor).
