The Global Investment Foundation was launched in Geneva in November 2022 with the mission of encouraging innovative developments in the private investments sector and reinforcing Geneva’s position as an investment banking hub. The annual Global Investment Forum, launched as a stand alone event in 2015, brings together leaders, thinkers, entrepreneurs to discuss the future of investments as well as global challenges & opportunities.
We foster a community of private investors, financial institutions, entrepreneurs, politicians, international organisations, and academia, committed to improving the state of the world by accelerating the transition to a sustainable economy through impact driven allocation of assets.
