About the host

Ryan F.

Private Equity (TPG) and Investment Banking (Lazard) Coach

Hi! I'm Ryan Fogarty, and I'm a former investor at TPG Growth.

I attended Brigham Young University, where I studied Finance and graduated in 2018. During my time at BYU, and largely due to the mentorship and coaching of other BYU students and alum, I became familiar with Investment Banking and Private Equity and was attracted to the unique platform for professional growth that beginning a career in those industries provides. While I was attracted to those industries and the opportunity that they could provide, I had no experience and no idea about where to start. Fortunately for me, BYU had a strong ecosystem of resources and mentors that I had the opportunity to utilize to build my resume and prepare for interviews, which ultimately led to an investment banking internship with Lazard in their New York City office. Before going back to Lazard full-time, I helped lead BYU's Investment Banking Club as a Co-President, where I had the unique opportunity to coach 100+ students through the challenging process of preparing for investment banking recruiting.

Shortly after beginning working at Lazard, I went through the hectic on-cycle private equity recruiting process and landed a role at TPG, where I worked as an Associate on the Consumer Growth team. In addition to my "typical" Associate responsibilities at TPG, I've been involved with our fund's on-cycle recruiting process and have led the administration and grading of our firm's modeling case study. On top of that, I had the unique opportunity to work on TPG's January 2022 Initial Public Offering, where I gained unique insight into the competitive landscape and differentiation of a wide variety of the major publicly traded private equity firms (Apollo, Ares, Blackstone, Carlyle, EQT, KKR, etc.).

Outside of work, you can find me skiing and/or riding my bike around the Wasatch mountains in Salt Lake City.
