THE FUTURE INVESTMENT INITIATIVE

Welcome to the sixth edition of the Future Investment Initiative (FII), powered by the Future Investment Initiative Institute. FII will be held in Riyadh from 25-27 October 2022 and will convene the world’s foremost CEOs, policymakers, investors, entrepreneurs, and young leaders to shape the future of international investment and the global economy.

Last year’s theme—Invest in Humanity—continues to guide our thinking for this year’s FII. Economic opportunities abound across every continent—but supply shocks, inflation, a global energy crisis, and geopolitical conflicts present deep challenges.

This year’s FII will include in-depth conversations about new pathways for global investment; analysis of critical industry trends; and unparalleled networking among CEOs, world leaders, and experts. We invite you to share your ideas at the frontier of this new world.

THEME FOR 2022

As the pandemic recedes from our collective consciousness—and as a war in Europe upends long-established power structures—the world begins to get a clearer sense of large-scale dynamics that will define the next century and beyond.

Welcome to the New Global Order

The New Global Order faces unprecedented challenges just as it dissolves distinctions between the physical world and the virtual world. It is redefining what it means to be human. It is forcing centuries-old concepts like art and money to be reconceived on the blockchain. And it is enabling a new generation of space entrepreneurs to expand the boundaries of the known universe.

Will this new global order ignite investments and innovations to solve the wealth gap? Will it inspire businesses and governments to deliver high-quality healthcare, education, and jobs for all? Will it enable sustainable investments to solve the energy crisis, while empowering new engines of economic growth? Will it optimize the potential of our youth? And will it inspire every person, company, institution, and government on the planet to invest in humanity?

The war in Ukraine has upended the global energy economy, clearing the way for new ideas and partnerships. How will this reconfiguration of energy supplies change the sector and global energy supply chains? What will the global energy crunch mean for net-zero objectives and the advance of renewables? Which new energy leadership will emerge?

Rising generations of employees are expressing vastly different expectations than previous generations—for financial compensation, work-life balance, flexible office hours, political activism, and more. How will young employees and senior business leaders strike a balance for the greater good of companies, economies, and the planet? How are younger business leaders displacing old norms and creating new workplace cultures and expectations?
