Allow me to take the opportunity to welcome you to the Future Investment Initiative and to the FII community.
FII was born from a recognition that the world of investment has changed fundamentally in recent years. Low interest rates have forced investors to look to new sources of returns. Technological advances, regulatory reforms and human innovation are creating new opportunities more rapidly than ever before. And harnessing investment is increasingly vital to solving some of the world’s great challenges, from addressing climate change to managing finite global resources.
We believe that investment has the potential to transform the future of our societies – and we believe that by convening people from across the world we can help shape that future for the better.
FII brings together decision makers, leading investors and global experts to explore future economic trends and opportunities, shed light on the future of industries, and discuss how investment can continue to drive overall global prosperity and development.
Now in its third edition, FII 2019 will take place from October 29th to 31st in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and will continue to explore the trends, opportunities and challenges shaping the global investment landscape.
Organized around the overall theme of ‘what is next for global business?’ the event will focus on three key pillars: sustainable future, technology for good and advanced society. And whether you will be with us in Riyadh in October, or joining the conversation online through our social media channels, we look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be another exciting gathering.
I look forward to welcoming you and to hearing your views on how we can shape the future of global investment.
