The 2016 Conference on Inclusive Capitalism General

2016 Conference on Inclusive Capitalism

Committing to the future

The 2016 Conference on Inclusive Capitalism took place in New York on October 9th and 10th. This was our third-annual invitation-only event and a signature milestone in gathering the world’s most important leaders who are committed to creating a more inclusive global economy.

This conference brought together the world’s leading institutional investors, asset owners, corporate chief executive officers, policymakers and economic thinkers, from over 20 countries, to work together on ideas and actions that will help restore capitalism as an engine of broadly-shared prosperity and regain public trust.

This year’s event took an interactive approach with participants moving beyond ideas to establish goals and commitments for how their companies and organizations can promote long-termism, integrate environmental, social, and governance factors, improve workforce conditions and economic opportunities for their employees, and drive inclusive economic growth. 

We were honored that Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, joined us and that Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank of England, launched the conference on the evening of Sunday, October 9th.

To lead the discussion at the conference, we confirmed Larry Fink of Blackrock, Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan and Bill McNabb of Vanguard, who deliberated the role of asset managers in the system, Siv Jensen, the Norwegian Minister of Finance and Jack Ehnes of CalSTRS, who provided their expertise in discussing the impact that the world’s largest asset owners can make, and Indra Nooyi of PepsiCo, Paul Polman of Unilever and Mark Bertolini of Aetna, who discussed initiatives and issues within their corporations.
