We're delighted to share the news that Davide Serra*, founder of Algebris Investments, has confirmed the meeting with our group on MONDAY, March 7th. We would like to thank Wharton alum, Stefano Iamoni, and his firm, Consilium SGR, for having organized the meeting together with The Boston Consulting Group.
BCG will host our meeting in its (brand new!) Milan office, Via Ugo Foscolo 1, attached to Galleria Vittorio Emanuele. Registration begins at 6:30 pm and Davide will start his talk at 7:00 pm.
Priority for participation at this event will be for Wharton/Penn alums and their guests (a family member, work colleague, or friend). Each alum can bring 2 guests. If you have a larger group in mind, please contact us ASAP on [email protected]
Registration will be on a first come-first served basis. If you're coming with or without a guest, please provide us names and affiliation when you RSVP on [email protected]
The event will coincide with our monthly aperitivo and we're sure that you'll agree that it's a great alternative to the usual get-together.
