Overseas Private Investment Corporation
Mr. Alexander Hadden is a Director with the Structured Finance & Insurance Department at the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC), the U.S. Government’s development finance institution. OPIC mobilizes private capital to help solve critical development challenges and in doing so, advances U.S. foreign policy. In his current role, Mr. Hadden originates and underwrites project finance, commercial finance and risk sharing frameworks for investments in emerging markets. Most recently, he has been active underwriting investments in financial services, extractives and telecommunications in West Africa.

He received his master’s degree from the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce at the University of Kentucky.
