About Us


EMP traces its roots to the founding in 1992 of its predecessor company, Emerging Markets Partnership.  The firm's two founders, Moeen A. Qureshi (Chairman) and Donald C. Roth (Managing Partner) retired from the World Bank after distinguished careers (Chief of Operations and Treasurer, respectively) and created EMP for the purpose of marshaling private capital in order to take advantage of the attractive investment opportunities which were beginning to appear in the world's emerging economies at that time.


EMP's first fund began in 1994, targeting opportunities for investments in infrastructure projects and companies in Asia.   Since that time, EMP has raised funds targeting Latin America, Africa, Central and Eastern Europe and the member countries of the Islamic Development Bank.
