Aly-Khan transitioned from a career in the private sector, spanning agriculture, food and beverage, renewable energy, and technology, to join Dalberg in 2010. His motivation was to engage with the world’s most pressing challenges. Presently, he serves as the Director of Dalberg’s Europe region and established the London office, where he is currently based.
Aly-Khan’s interests and expertise revolve around two core areas, both fueled by his commitment to addressing global issues that tend to affect the greatest number of vulnerable people, in collaboration with Dalberg’s clients. Firstly, he focuses on the intricate interplay of sustainability within agriculture, energy, and climate change. His pursuit involves identifying transformative approaches to reconcile potential trade-offs between socioeconomic progress and environmental sustainability. Secondly, recognizing that by 2030, more than 80% of the world’s most impoverished and vulnerable populations will reside in fragile conflict-affected regions or will be displaced individuals, Aly-Khan leads Dalberg’s Conflict, Security, and Humanitarian Aid practice. In this role, he guides Dalberg’s global initiatives to support aid organizations in enhancing their effectiveness and optimizing responses to both chronic and acute conflicts.
Aly-Khan collaborates with a diverse spectrum of clients, including multilateral organizations, governments, donors, foundations, civil society groups, corporations, and private investors. He combines his expertise in strategy, organizational design, and effectiveness, with the ability to mobilize investment capital to tackle the intricate challenges faced by clients.
Aly-Khan began his career at OC&C Strategy Consultants and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Politics, Philosophy, and Economics from Oxford University, along with a Master’s in Economics from McGill University.
