Dalberg, London

Biography

Aly-Khan is a Partner and Founder of Dalberg’s consulting presence in London, and leads the firm’s Agriculture and Food Security expertise area. His experience both within and pre-Dalberg has involved roles in and advisory for the entire agriculture value chain and agro-allied businesses, including upstream inputs supply and manufacturing, commercial as well as smallholder agriculture, post-harvest processing, in-country and international agricultural logistics and trading, agro-processing, and market development for food and beverages companies.

Aly-Khan’s experience covers both focusing on individual segments of the value chain or individual crops, to total country and even multi-country level strategies that aim to drive transformational growth in agriculture and agro-processing. As a result, he often leads projects that either have a strong agribusiness emphasis, or involve systemic transformation in entire agriculture sectors. A recent example includes leading the development of the African Development Bank’s 10-year strategy for Agricultural Transformation in Africa, working directly with President Adesina. He brings both a strategy and investment advisory lens to his agriculture work, and has experience in attracting finance for agricultural investments in multiple emerging countries both for commercial agribusiness projects, as well as projects and programs that involve overcoming challenges to the provision of finance to smallholders.

Prior to Dalberg, Mr. Jamal founded Frontier Advisory, a boutique consulting firm dedicated to providing FMCG/Consumer Goods and TMT players with pragmatic organic and acquisition-based entry strategies into emerging and frontier markets. He started his career at OC&C Strategy Consultants in their Paris and London offices. He holds a Bachelors in Arts from Oxford University in Politics, Philosophy and Economics and a Masters in Economics from McGill University.
