Acting VP/Head of Investment Funds at OPIC
Ms. Nguyen is Acting VP/Head of Investment Funds and Managing Director of Funds Portfolio at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). As the U.S. Government’s development finance institution, OPIC mobilizes private capital to help address critical development challenges and in doing so, advances U.S. foreign policy and national security priorities. Because OPIC works with the U.S. private sector, it helps U.S. businesses gain footholds in emerging markets, catalyzing revenues, jobs and growth opportunities both at home and abroad. OPIC achieves its mission by providing investors with financing, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds, when commercial funding cannot be obtained elsewhere.
Established as an agency of the U.S. Government in 1971, OPIC operates on a self-sustaining basis at no net cost to American taxpayers. Since 1987, the Investment Funds Department has committed $4.7 billion to 74 private equity funds in emerging markets. These funds in turn have invested over $6 billion in more than 590 privately-owned and managed companies across 65 countries.
