About the Future Leaders Group

The IIF Future Leaders program was formed in 2014 by the IIF’s Board of Directors to recognize young leaders within the financial industry and to foster ties between rising stars from different regions and backgrounds. Participants are nominated by their firms based on a track record of achievement within their institution and their potential, in the nominating institutions’ view, to become a leader in global finance.

Participants attend two events during their year as an IIF Future Leader. Each meeting is designed to introduce them to the big ideas and topics that will drive the future of the industry. We hope this will spur participants to think beyond their day-to-day responsibilities and engage on key issues they may confront as future industry leaders.
