Riyadh, Saudi Arabia—As multiple sectors witness a renaissance, what are the investments that will create the greatest benefits for humanity?” This will be the core discussion of the 5th anniversary edition of the Future Investment Initiative (FII), which will take place in Riyadh on 26-28 October 2021 under the theme “Invest in Humanity”. The annual event by the FII Institute brings together world leaders, experts, innovators, and media in a global forum to explore pioneering solutions addressing society’s challenges and propel action towards their realisation.
With an inclusive agenda, FII has quickly proved its effectiveness as a global platform for cross-border collaboration in service of humanity.
“The success of FII to date is testament to the eagerness of the private and public sectors to play an active role in addressing the issues we face as a global community. By leveraging the enormous economic opportunities that will lie ahead in the post-Covid era, we will also catalyse the changes needed to achieve an equitable, prosperous future for all,” said H.E. Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Chairman of the FII Institute board of trustees and Governor of the Public Investment Fund.
FII Institute CEO Richard Attias said, “As the world acknowledges the need for sustainable change, investors and leaders are looking for the right avenues to contribute in a way that creates both value and impact. The Neo-Renaissance of the global economy, which we explored in January during the fourth edition of FII, is now emerging, and the FII fifth anniversary edition will be a unique call to action.”
The most recent edition of FII, which took place in a hybrid format in January 2021, across global hubs, assembled over 200 speakers, 15,000 attendees from 130 nations, and the on-ground participation of leaders of government and industry.
