The CEO of Sturgeon Capital is listed as a speaker at the 2nd Iranian Trade Conference: New Prospects for British-Iranian Trade and Investments, which took place on November 2, 2016, in London. (2nd Iranian Trade Conference, "Speakers").
"When Clemente Cappello traveled across Iran in May 2012, the U.S. and European Union had just expanded sanctions against the nation in an effort to push President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to curtail its nuclear program. Just over three years later, the 35-year-old hedge fund manager wants to invest in the country. Sturgeon Capital, which is based in London and oversees $80 million in frontier and emerging markets, is seeking to raise a fund to invest directly in Iran, which could emerge from international sanctions under terms of a nuclear agreement reached in Vienna last week. The potential removal would be a 'game changer,' said Cappello, who set up Sturgeon in 2005 primarily to invest in Central Asia. It means 'you’re someone we can do business with,' he said. The fund could be as much as $30 million by the end of this year and may start investing as early as August." (Bloomberg, "Hedge Fund Eyes Iran as Nuclear Deal Paves Way for Foreign Money," 7/21/2015)
