Sustainable capitalism calls for using the capital available to a business in a way that creates value and profit today while preserving and creating value for the future. We will discuss existing trends that are putting sustainable capitalism under pressure and the drivers of corporate short-termism, and offer recommendations that corporate executives, board members, investors, and policy makers can take to rebalance business to a longer term view.

Key takeaways:
• Why pressure for companies to meet short-term financial goals is likely to increase in the coming years
• How activist hedge funds are changing the governance of public companies
• What can be done to encourage long-term thinking and performance

Who should attend: Senior business and investor executives from the legal, audit, risk, and governance functions
