Yanki Ukyab


After completing my preliminary schooling in Kathmandu, Nepal, I received my undergraduate (Truman State University) and graduate (University of Missouri, Columbia) degrees in Economics in the US.  After 7 years of various corporate finance roles in fortune 500 firms including Sprint Corporation and the AES Corporation, I moved back to Nepal in 2012 to join the newly formed Investment Board of Nepal (IBN). At IBN, I lead the economic and financial analytics unit supporting the commercial negotiations for Nepal’s first mega hydro power deal and conducting financial and economic due-diligence on national priority projects. My interests are in transnational energy trade and riparian issues from the stand point of a land-locked developing country like Nepal. Furthermore, I am interested to learn how public private partnership models can function optimally in the energy and infrastructure sectors so as to ensure democratic dividends for the society.
