255. Stephanie Drescher of Apollo: From legacy to laying the groundwork of a private wealth business

Stephanie Drescher is Chief Client and Product Development Officer at Apollo.  She started her career in the Alternative Investment Group at JP Morgan and is a Board Member at ADT.

We start our discussion with a tribute to Stephanie’s grandmother who taught her about stocks and the markets, sowing the seeds of an interest in finance that has been lifelong. We trace her education in a women’s college, through to her entry into finance and her progression through the ranks of an investment bank.

We move then to discuss the evolving nature of institutional and private wealth product demand, and how it has changed over recent years.  We speak in particular about the role of alternative assets and the culture of firms that endure.
