About Marko Dimitrijevic
Marko Dimitrijevic is an entrepreneur, investor, photographer, public speaker and author. Driven by curiosity, he credits his business success to the fact that he follows his interests and reads at least six hours each day, staying incredibly well-informed on global business trends and opportunities, economics, markets, technology, and more.
Marko Dimitrijevic has spent his career seeking out investment opportunities in emerging and frontier markets, the latter of which consists of virtually untapped, developing countries that will become the emerging markets of tomorrow. He has invested in over 150 countries, including 120 emerging or frontier markets, and was one of the earliest Western investors in China, Russia, Indonesia, Bangladesh, and Saudi Arabia. Based on this experience, he wrote Frontier Investor: How to Prosper in the Next Emerging Markets, which was hailed by Michael Spence, former Nobel Prize Winner in Economics, as “brilliant” and a “tour de force.”
He is routinely interviewed by influential publications and organizations, including Institutional Investor, IdeaMensch, Patch, ValueWalk, and 4-Traders. His writing has appeared in AlleyWatch, The Next Web, Thrive Global, and Hedge Fund Law Report. He’s also been the recipient of numerous awards including "Top 25 Mid-Size Hedge Funds" by Bloomberg in 2014; "Top 100 Hedge Funds" by Barron's for the three years ended 2011; "Top 10 Emerging Market Hedge Funds" by Bloomberg in 2010; and "Global Macro Fund of the Year" by Absolute Return magazine in 2007.
Prior to Volta Global, Marko Dimitrijevic founded Everest Capital, which he grew from $8 million to over $3 billion in assets under management. From 1995 to 2015, he managed one of the world’s best performing emerging markets funds. Before founding Everest, he managed large securities portfolios as Senior Vice President for Fortune 500 company Triangle Industries and its successor, Trian Group.
He graduated from the Faculty of Business and Economics (HEC) at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, and earned an MBA from Stanford University. He is fluent in English, French, Spanish, Serbian/Croatian, Portuguese, with proficiency in Italian and German.
