Details of the fourth edition of the Future Investment Initiative (FII) have been revealed ahead of the launch this week in Saudi Arabia.
The event is a multi-hub conference that brings together bold-thinking chief executives, investors and policymakers to usher in an era of reinvention.
Senator Matteo Renzi, former prime minister of Italy and member of the board of trustees of the FII Institute will share his insights on how he sees the renaissance of our world.
With the global economy emerging out of its deepest recession since World War II, Yasir Al-Rumayyan, FII Institute chairman and governor of the Public Investment Fund, Ray Dalio, co-chairman of Bridgewater Associates, Laurence Fink, chief executive of BlackRock, Thomas Gottstein, chief executive of Credit Suisse Group, and David Solomon, chief executive of Goldman Sachs Group, will consider how the international investment community can leverage the economic downturn to build a stronger, more sustainable future for everyone.
Usain Bolt, eight-time Olympic Gold medallist from Jamaica, will join the 100 speakers participating virtually from hubs in New York, Paris, Beijing and Mumbai and the 50 attending in-person in Riyadh.
They will explore how investment and innovation can shape a rebirth of the global economy that will lead to a new chapter for humanity.
Some of the most influential investors and tech pioneers in the world will come together for two days of truly global conversation.
On day one, January 27th, speakers in Riyadh and from the hubs will consider how chief executives will re-invent work for the post-Covid-19 world, investing in the next decade of global health and whether 2021 can be the year that sustainable investing goes mainstream.
One session will address how the pandemic should accelerate global trends like the restructuring of international value chains, a focus on reshoring and regional cooperation, which should all boost FDI.
In the second day, January 28th, the conference will shift to what investments will create a generation of space entrepreneurs and if artificial intelligence will lead the resurgence of the global economy.
One session will examine how the pandemic is driving digital currency and innovative finance around the world.
