New World, New Choices: Global Investment Forum 2023 Unveils Initial Speakers

The Global Investment Foundation is thrilled to announce its initial speaker line-up for the 7th edition of the Global Investment Forum, which will take place 15-16 June 2023 in Geneva, Switzerland.

The 2023 Forum will bring together thought-leaders from the business, academic and political sectors to discuss the major challenges faced at a global and regional level as well as solutions and opportunities ahead.

Titled New World, New Choices, the program will address rising environmental, social, political and economic tensions leading to a context of massive uncertainty, instability, as well as volatility. The pace at which the world is changing is unprecedented: the way we live, work, and relate to one another as individuals and communities is indeed evolving as fast as our adoption of disruptive technologies, now fusing physical, digital, and biological universes.

Recognizing that private investors and the private investment industry play an important role in supporting innovative strategies needed to solve these challenges, the 2023 forum will focus on the tools, skills and strategies that will allow us to collectively build resilience, guiding investment decisions towards collective prosperity and ultimately contributing to making better choices.

Our speakers this year will include:

  • François Hollande, Former President of France
  • Gaya Herrington, Vice President Sustainability Research at Schneider Electric
  • Sa’ad Shah, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Noetic
  • Jason Thomas, Managing Director and Head of Global Research at Carlyle

The event will be presented and moderated by journalist and Global Investment Foundation advisor Bruno Giussani.

We will announce additional speakers in the months leading up to the conference.

The 2023 Global Investment Forum is supported by partners ACE & Company, Citi Bank, and IPG Howden.
