About the Author
Gregory Djerejian is Managing Director and Head of Asia-Pacific for a global asset management firm, particularly active in commercial real estate, hotel & resort development, company acquisitions/disposals and alternative investments. While with the company he has had leading roles in numerous strategic transactions across varied sectors, based in Geneva, London, New York and currently Hong Kong. He also manages a philanthropic organization focused on assisting the citizens of Armenia, through projects in the health care sector, below‑market loans to a wide spectrum of companies, and educational grants.
Previously Mr. Djerejian worked as a corporate lawyer in New York City and Paris focused on project finance, securities and M&A transactions. He also served in various foreign and humanitarian policy roles with the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Office, International Rescue Committee, and as a consultant to the Bosnian Federation on the Train and Equip Program, in collaboration with the U.S. State Department.
He currently serves on the Board of Directors of the Vietnam Property Fund, an Irish Stock Exchange listed company focused on investments in the Vietnamese real estate sector and on the Advisory Committee of Granatus Ventures, a venture capital fund focused on Armenia-related opportunities. He previously served on the Board of Directors of Lyford Group International, a global macro strategy hedge fund based in New York. He has also served on several non-profit boards.
Mr. Djerejian is a graduate of Phillips Academy (Andover), has a BSFS from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service, as well a JD from Georgetown University Law Center and MBA from Columbia University's Graduate School of Business. Djerejian is fluent in French and conversant in Spanish. He was admitted as a term member to the Council on Foreign Relations and is a member of the New York State Bar.
He occasionally comments on global politics, finance & diplomacy-related matters at this site, and has been published in various publications like The Atlantic, Financial Times and the New York Times. He currently lives in Hong Kong with his wife, daughter, and son. Djerejian previously lived (at the inception of this weblog) in the Belgravia neighborhood of London which is home to many of the city's embassies, and inspires the name of the weblog. However, Djerejian ultimately counts himself a New Yorker, if unfortunately an itinerant, sometimes lapsed one, having lived in over 10 countries.
He welcomes reader comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
