2001 - Alon Lederman

Alon is an investment banker with over fifteen years of experience. 

He currently serves as Managing Director of Emerging Markets Structuring at Credit Suisse in Brazil.  Alon provides corporate clients and financial institutions with opportunities in one of three areas: investments, financing, or assets/liability management (hedging).  Some of the solutions he presents to his clients include tax efficient investments, funding linked to the performance of the business, and derivatives hedging on currency, interest rates and commodity risks.  He likes the energy and fast pace of investment banking; and while having to adjust to market pressures and constantly changing client demands is frustrating at times, it makes the job very dynamic and challenging.

After college, Alon joined Indosuez Brazil as an investment banker, where he worked for six years, and helped set up the emerging markets asset management business. He then took a break from the world of investment banking to pursue an MBA, learn about different industries and sectors, and try his hand at entrepreneurship, developing a yield management system for broadband bandwidth.  Shortly thereafter, he worked as a consultant for a few months, and then moved back into banking, joining Credit Suisse in New York.

Alon has been an active participant in Siebel Scholars Foundation events since 2001, attending almost every conference.  He has a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Universidade de Sao Palo in Brazil, an MBA from MIT, and is married with two children.
