London Stock Exchange Group welcomes The Future Investment Initiative Institute, celebrating the launch of the FII regional summit “Inclusive ESG for Emerging Markets”

The Future Investment Initiative (FII) Institute is a new global nonprofit foundation with an investment arm and one agenda: Impact on Humanity. Global, inclusive and committed to ESG principles, the FII Institute fosters great minds from around the world and turn ideas into real-world solutions in four critical areas: AI and Robotics, Education, Healthcare and Sustainability. The FII Institute has harnessed the energy among decision makers, investors and young people for change into three pillars: THINK, XCHANGE, ACT. The institute invites everyone to join their journey in creating a more sustainable future for humanity.

FII Institute is in London because they will be holding the “Inclusive ESG in Emerging Markets” regional summit to bring together international investors, world leaders, thought leaders, policy makers, global CEOs, and heads of sustainability to discuss and shape the future of ESG, particularly in emerging markets. Speakers include His Excellency Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Governor of PIF, Chairman of FII Institute, Chairman of Saudi Aramco, Larry Fink, CEO of Blackrock, and David Schwimmer, CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group. In partnership with leading professional services firm EY, the FII Institute will unveil a proprietary new inclusive ESG framework and scoring methodology at the summit, developed for informing and accelerating ESG investments in emerging economies. It is a privilege to bring these messages to the London Stock Exchange.

Richard Attias, CEO, FII Institute, said:

“To stave off both the climate and biodiversity crises requires a level of international cooperation unprecedented in the history of the world. And yet financial markets are more connected than they have ever been and more motivated to bring about change. Our inclusive ESG initiative should help to bring emerging markets to the attention of investors, unlocking some of the vast resources that will be needed to transition to a just and low- carbon world."
