The FII 2018 will bring together renowned visionaries with the power to shape the future of global investment under three themes: Investing in transformation, technology as opportunity, and advancing human potential.

The second edition aims to continue building active, international networks of influential actors to further explore emerging industries that will shape the global economy and investment environment over the coming decades.
The PIF “is developing into one of the world’s leading and most impactful sovereign wealth funds, and we look forward to continuing to build strong strategic partnerships while also showcasing the opportunity for private sector participation as… Saudi Arabia’s economy continues to expand and diversify,” said PIF Managing Director Yasir Al-Rumayyan.
The FII is being organized in the context of the Vision 2030 reform program, which is charting the path for the Kingdom to harness its investment capabilities and strategic location to become a global investment hub.
