Event - Financing the 21st Century (GLOBE Capital)

This event will take place April 4 - 5, 2017 in Toronto, Canada at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Financial markets and policy decision-makers will come together to make better-informed decisions and pursue better returns for risk profiles. Leaders will discuss how to mobilize and accelerate the capital necessary to transform our economy.

To ensure prosperity through the coming decades, leading economies will need to invest heavily in advanced and resilient infrastructure. For the private sector, the upside is huge: Necessary global investment is projected at US $90 trillion by 2030. In response, GLOBE Capital will explore how to open the floodgates of investment necessary to fully realize this opportunity. Our goals are to attract both innovation and new pools of capital to fund advanced, low-carbon infrastructure while mitigating investment risk and enhancing returns. Senior decision-makers from across North America, in both the public and private sectors, who are critical to this conversation will come together in Canada’s finance capital. Together, they will explore ideas with a 360° lens focused on mobilizing the investment necessary for positive economic transformation.
