FII Institute started in 2017 as an annual event bringing people together to invest in the most promising solutions. Since then, we’ve become so much more.
We realized that this energy of catalyzing ideas into actions with a global human impact should happen more than once a year. We need ongoing, sustained action.
FII Institute has expanded its scope to become a fully-fledged, new generation of global, non-profit foundation with an investment arm and one pressing agenda: positive Impact on Humanity.

FII 5 - Invest In Humanity
For many at the top of the economic pyramid, the pandemic unleashed new sources of wealth and economic growth. For others, it brought widespread social and economic challenges. Structural inequalities between rich and poor and developed and emerging economies are unsustainable. How can leaders from business and government leverage the transformations of the past year to ensure progress, prosperity, and opportunity for all? Join us to participate in shaping a prosperous, sustainable future for Humanity.
"This anniversary edition of FII… food security, rewriting the social contract, investing in green initiatives"
FII Regional summit - inclusive esg for emerging markets
During this critical time, the Future Investment Initiative (FII) Institute has set out to develop a more direct, robust road map for the future of ESG, particularly in emerging markets. To support this important work, the Institute will convene a community of Global Heads of Sustainability, ESG, and Stewardship; CEOs; government officials; social innovators; thought leaders; and other experts to engage in vital conversations that will shape the future of the global ESG agenda, and support investors with the tools and knowledge to drive sustainable, alpha-generating investment strategies.
"As global businesses and investors seek to urgently align sustainability with financial performance focused on new economic and environmental priorities, there are many competing perspectives on how to approach these issues."

ESG as a guiding principle
We at FII Institute have ESG deeply embedded in the fiber of our identity. These principles not only provide the framework for our own institution, but also inform our decisions to invest in companies that are offering exciting solutions to one of humanity’s pressing issues. We don’t just look at the solution, we look at the big picture of the company through an ESG lens. Companies with healthy ESG scores not only perform better financially, they are able to weather the storms of change. They have longevity and stability so that they can keep delivering their valuable products and services to humanity uninterrupted.
E is for Environment:
Energy and resources efficiency, and minimizing the impact it has on the planet.
S for Social
The relationship a company has with people, partners and communities.
