Guyana has identified its new High Commissioner to India in the person of Dr David Pollard.
This was disclosed by Minister of Foreign Affairs Carl Greenidge in a letter on page 7 of today’s edition.
Pollard who studied Applied Maths at Cambridge University and has a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Imperial College, London is Director of Pollards Et Filles Limited, an equity and bond fund.
The fund’s website describes it as an emerging markets hedge fund, which has achieved outstanding returns through investing in local markets in the Caribbean and Latin America. Guyana is one of these markets with the fund operating here since 2011.
Pollard will replace Ronald Gajraj, the former embattled Minister of Home Affairs who served as Guyana’s High Commissioner to India from 2005 to 2015.
