Is there a way to unite these groups before the transition period, leveraging common leadership and problem-solving approaches to address the challenges facing our country?

Conventional wisdom often suggests that a nation's health is a byproduct of its wealth. But as the historian Will Durant once noted, "The health of nations is more important than the wealth of nations." In fact, as much as 50 percent of the economic growth the world has experienced in the past two centuries—the most prosperous period of human history—can be traced to advances in health and medical research. That context explains why we always begin the Global Conference with a session focused on the most pressing issues in prevention, treatment, and care. Join Institute Chairman Mike Milken and senior leaders from the public and private sectors on what the future holds for accelerating the development of, and expanding access to, more effective health solutions.

Although the Opportunity Zones tax benefits are federal, it is expected that state and local policies, incentives, and strategies will play a central role in determining how this new source of capital will flow. By addressing local implementation barriers, and promoting regional and multi-sector collaboration to maximize community development and job creation, local governments can create a toolkit to fulfill their economic development agendas and increase prosperity for their residents, in partnership with Opportunity Zone investors. In this private session, state and local policymakers will engage with investors and other stakeholders to understand best practices for attracting OZ investors to support state and local government priorities.

In 2018 the FDA approved a record number of new products, but pharmaceutical R&D returns have fallen to their lowest level in nine years. Biotech IPOs are still strong in an overall weakening market, but federal investment in biomedical R&D, which feeds the product and start-up pipeline, has declined almost 20 percent in real terms since 2003. How should we collectively be measuring the success of our R&D investments, and how are investment behaviors incentivized across the biomedical ecosystem? Can the economic and societal benefits of biomedical innovation outputs—from basic science to patient access—be measured from the patient perspective?

Since markets came to a violent halt during the fourth quarter of 2018, and then quickly bounced back, investors continue to wonder if the bull has strength to continue its run. Join some of the most outstanding managers and financiers as they tackle today's pressing questions: How will markets evolve as passive investment continues its rise and technology takes an ever-larger role in decision-making? Have equity markets become dependent on annual stock buybacks that have run up to a record-high $800 billion in the US alone? And how important have socioeconomic issues, specifically around values, become for modern-day capitalism?

National attitudes toward higher education appear to be souring. Half of Democrats and three-quarters of Republicans say higher education is "going in the wrong direction," according to a recent poll by the Pew Research Center. Another recent survey, by Gallup, showed that higher education has had the largest falloff in public opinion since 2015. The public thinks college costs too much. They question whether it adequately prepares graduates for work, and some fear the ivory-tower indoctrination of the next generation. University heads and political leaders will discuss the path forward for higher education and what the system needs to do to regain the public trust in the 21st century.

Proxy advisory firms play an essential—perhaps even central—role in our governance system. Their recommendations have tremendous influence on shareholder-vote outcomes. However, unlike other information intermediaries in influential capital markets—such as credit-rating agencies and auditing firms—proxy advisory firms have faced little regulation.

Latin America—the "best stock market in the world right now," according to Forbes—is looking promising for 2019. At the same time, political uncertainty continues to threaten otherwise encouraging high rates of return and optimistic outlooks. Will the momentum continue to carry over and allow newly elected officials to push through necessary reforms or should investors brace themselves for a slow grind as global growth continues its synchronized deceleration?

04/29/2019 10:30:00

With global populism on the rise, the debate has sharpened over the role of philanthropy in 21st-century democracy. A number of new books have levelled the critique that the philanthropic contributions of a privileged class or a corporate entity often result in their accruing outsized or undue influence that perhaps infringes on civil society. Navigating the role of the individual donor or a responsible corporate citizen may be more challenging than ever before, so individuals and organizations must engage thoughtfully, taking stock of their giving criteria and selection process, as well as the full impact of their contributions.

The most challenging part of new technology is arguably its successful incorporation into the value chain—the years of hype, and few use cases, of recent years, allude to the effect. But digitalization, open platforms, and blockchain have the potential of solving some of the most pressing problems in finance (such as transparent financial services around the globe). In this session, leaders in the FinTech space will explore the challenges of integrating cutting-edge technology and how innovative technologies can push financial inclusion and open trade.

To navigate the tides of change, leadership is crucial. As technology disrupts, dismisses, and reinvents entire sectors, the demands on CEOs are greater than ever before. Today's definition of success goes far beyond a leader's own company—it requires CEOs to engage in society and address such pressing issues as privacy, sustainability and inequality.

Women in Government: Creating More Pathways to Leadership

04/29/2019 10:30:00

In 2018, a record number of women ran for Congress, with a majority of Americans indicating they would like to see more women in top leadership positions—not only in elected office, but across executive government positions. Research has shown that in both business and politics, women are perceived to hold key qualities and behaviors essential for leadership. Women are more likely to use a tone of civility and respect, to convey compassion and empathy, and to be better at working out compromises and standing up for what they believe in. However, gender-based gaps in governmental leadership persist, with structural barriers and uneven expectations holding women back from professional ascension. How can we better enable a pipeline of women candidates and create more defined pathways to leadership for both appointed and elected positions? How are women in positions of power enabling more responsive and inclusive governance? How are current governmental leaders empowering the next generation of women to enter high political offices?

Before the summer of 2017, "Ozark" simply referred to a lakeside region in Missouri. Today, it is a household name that has taken online streaming content to the next level. In just two short years, Netflix's hit series Ozark has received two Golden Globe nominations, five Emmy nominations, and five Screen Actors Guild Award nominations with Jason Bateman's win for "Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series." Ozark has set itself apart as one of Netflix's most popular streaming shows. What is the secret to Ozark's success? What role do partnerships between acting, directing, and producing giants with streaming platforms mean for the future of the industry? And what does Season 3 have in store for our favorite dysfunctional families—the Brydes, Langmores and Snells?

Despite many technological advances in treatments, obesity remains an epidemic that is not getting better. In fact, it is getting worse. There is a great need within the health-care ecosystem to change how this disease is being addressed and treated. Both patients and health-care providers require a new approach. This private session will bring together many sectors of the health-care ecosystem to reimagine how care could be delivered differently in order to improve outcomes. The focus will be solutions that could be undertaken in the workplace, as that is where most people spend a bulk of their time. In addition, research has shown that obesity takes a toll on companies, affecting productivity and increasing costs.

No capital is more important to a company's success than its employees. And while we all know the importance of extraordinary thinkers and co-workers, many corporations struggle with identifying human capital and maintaining a culture of excellence that allows them to thrive. As the early pioneers of the asset management industry look to keep their businesses going, what role does a sustainable and lasting culture play? What have been the winning cultural attributes across businesses? How important is the strategy of a succession plan? And how can companies use the process to drive future staffing and development priorities?

With the uncertain future of the ratification of the USMCA, continuing political tensions on border security and migration, as well as the call to end corruption across Central and South America, the Americas have never been in a more critical position to work together and find solutions to the economic challenges facing their respective regions. It's also an opportunity to effect positive change for the Americas overall. In this panel, our speakers will explore the following questions:

  • How will the varying approaches to political movements and eradication of such issues as corruption affect the economic policies and relationships of North, Central, and South American countries?
  • How are the region's countries positioning themselves to appeal to foreign businesses and investment, and how are they working to keep native organizations from outsourcing jobs?
  • What policies are working to more effectively integrate refugees and migrants into the communities receiving them?
  • What steps can be taken to move the Americas towards greater economic integration and shared prosperity?

More than a year has now passed since the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act encouraged investment in low- to moderate-income communities through Opportunity Zones, fueled by tax incentives. The policy put forward the exciting prospect of helping solve some of the country's most pressing challenges by unlocking the nation's pool of unrealized capital gains, estimated to be more than $6 trillion. The initiative has been hailed by both investors and community advocates as a generational opportunity, but is it achieving its original objective of investing in distressed communities? This panel will take stock of Opportunity Zones and their promise to create meaningful lives.

Federal student loans have become one of the most worrying segments of consumer credit in the economy. As tuition continues to rise and students saddle themselves with unsustainable levels of debt, the economic consequences have become evident. For example, student debt has proven to be a drag on homeownership, with millennials forced to rent or live with their parents longer than previous generations. How can we address the growing student debt crisis? What alternative models can help ensure that the cost of education is more closely tied to student outcomes?

Mission Possible: From ESG to the SDGs (Invite only)

Doing well by accomplishing good is the goal of every socially conscious investor. Whether it's aligning your investments to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), integrating environmental, social or governance (ESG) factors into your portfolio management, or seeking active, impact investments that have measurable social good, it is clear that more and more "mainstream" investors are exploring more mission-driven opportunities. One recent study estimated that nearly $12 trillion in US portfolios is invested with some kind of social aim: environmental sustainability, for example, or pro-worker policies. But how can you ensure that products that are marketed as SDG or ESG are substantive, data-driven investments that move past a label and demonstrate a true triple bottom line? This private session will highlight opportunities that have a proven track record, as well as data tools and market resources that help to evaluate and validate impact investment opportunities.

The session participants will discuss:

  • What tools can investors use to design and track their ESG strategy to prove the factors are material to overall financial performance? 
  • Are there products that truly link to the SDGs? Is there enough data at a granular level to prove success? 
  • What products across the impact continuum have had the longest, most demonstrable track records? 
  • What data is missing and how can more traditional financial institutions integrate impact or sustainability factors into their systems to allow for better monitoring and evaluation?

The Milken Institute has long been focused on how technological disruption is changing the nature of work. The stories are familiar by now—more and more jobs are at risk of disappearing as robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other advances offer greater productivity with fewer employees. One question we face is how people will find meaning in a world with fewer jobs and fewer occupations. Today's CEOs must lead through this extraordinary transition. How can global CEOs predict and plan for these changes and the impact on their workforce? What is a CEO's role in shaping corporate culture, re-skilling the workforce, and investing in innovation? And how can CEOs predict where the future is headed and how best to plan and train for it?

At its best, the entertainment industry offers moviegoers, television viewers, and music listeners a reflection of themselves. Historically, however, those reflections have been predominantly monochromatic—but that appears to be changing. From inclusion riders and the "4 percent challenge" to box-office successes of female- and minority-led casts, diversity is now being demanded across the entertainment industry, both in front of and behind the camera. As audiences increasingly prefer diverse content, consumer tastes are confirming the corporate adage that diversity is, in fact, good for business. With the recent small but significant gains for women and people of color throughout the entertainment industry, how are both content creators and distributors taking the lead in improving diversity in media?

The panel will focus on uses of artificial intelligence and machine learning for the early detection of cancer, its diagnosis, drug development, and clinical decision-making. These technologies have the potential to accelerate our understanding of cancer at the cellular and the systems (or "whole person") level. The AI health-care market is estimated to be $2.1 billion today and to grow to more than $30 billion by 2025. To support such growth, the biopharma industry is rapidly expanding its human capital in this area through multiple means. Advances in machine learning are improving analysis of radiological images for cancer detection, as well as analysis of pathology slides and blood samples for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. In addition, AI and machine learning are being deployed to aid in the discovery of novel therapies, optimize patient selection for treatment, and monitor for drug resistance and disease recurrence. The potential impact of artificial intelligence in oncology is great, and the panel will also explore challenges and obstacles that may delay widespread application.

America's pension shortfall for defined benefit plans alone is estimated to be as high as $7.5 trillion across government and corporate pensions. And the outlook for the alternative of defined contribution plans is equally dire. Only 65 percent of private-sector workers have access to such plans, and only about half contribute. Given that many experts question the feasibility of pension plans to persistently return 6 percent to 8 percent, what can be done to address their shortfalls? What solutions are available for workers not covered by workplace plans? Will new innovative models provide states with a solution? Ultimately, how will the nation save retirement?

Climate change, diversity, the future of work, and technology—do you know what risk exposure your portfolio has to material issues? Do you have municipal bonds for cities that have no plan against future superstorms? Do you have stock in companies that have been ignoring forced labor in their supply chain? Most investors have their own metrics to assess an asset's risk, or they utilize firms such as rating agencies to support their due diligence. But what might be some lurking risks that you have not assessed or priced? Panelists will discuss how environmental and social factors have been proven more material to creditworthiness and financial performance than previously expected. They will also share new technologies and processes for better understanding the real risks in your portfolios.

Today, one in three older adults dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia. It kills more people than do breast cancer and prostate cancer combined, yet only 16 percent of older adults receive regular cognitive assessments during routine checkups. The economic and emotional costs on families, caregivers, and society are staggering. During this session, a panel of experts will discuss the direct and indirect costs of dementia—especially how it disproportionately impacts women and minorities. New research will be revealed regarding the importance of brain health to delay onset, improve overall health, lower costs, and increase clinical trial participation. The discussion will also focus on ways to improve rates of early detection and diagnosis, as well as how to reduce disparities based on gender, race, and income.

Big Tech companies, the darlings of Wall Street for so long, are facing historic headwinds and consumer distrust on Main Street, not to mention Capitol Hill and among regulators in Europe. Under ever greater scrutiny for the data they collect, how they collect it and their models for monetizing it, Big Tech is facing potentially big changes. Does such scrutiny mark an end of an era—or perhaps just a chapter—for the likes of Facebook, Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, and their peers in Silicon Valley? How should tech-savvy but time-limited consumers think about the impacts—positive or otherwise—that Big Tech has on their lives?

For a number of years now, the dominant technology platforms such as Google and Amazon have been flirting with how they might be able to disrupt the health-care industry, a critical and growing economic driver badly in need of new ideas and more data-driven approaches. Now the landscape seems to be shifting somewhat: Tech companies' interest in health care seems to be extending in other directions, and more traditional large "platform" companies such as Walmart are getting into the game while embracing data and technology internally. What's driving these shifts, and what might be the impacts on our health?

Young people have become a potent influence on how shoppers purchase products and relate to brands. Consumer trends are clearly moving towards individual expression, label avoidance, and a mobilization of purchasing power to align with a variety of causes. How are brands responding to these demands? And as a company's relationship with its consumers becomes increasingly more important, how is community development becoming a key component of its brand and marketing strategy? Digital marketing is proliferating and consumer data increasingly more integral and available, so just how are brands strategically engaging with the next generation?

Women's economic empowerment is a prerequisite for inclusive and equitable economic growth as well as global peace and security. Individualized solutions to this global challenge require collaboration across the public and private sectors to expand access to capital, increase labor force participation, and ensure safe and secure work environments as women both enter and advance within the formal economy. However, commitment to these issues cannot rest with short-term financial mechanisms alone. Equally as consequential are the structural barriers that prevent women around the world from reaching their economic potential and contributing to local and global prosperity. How are international actors positioning women at the heart of their development strategy and embedding gender expertise within their government programs, economic models, and policy priorities?

It is often said that artists mirror society and the political conditions of everyday life in their work, yet looking back, we know that many collections represent the likes of their patrons. However, the nationality, ethnicity, and gender of the artist also play a role. When it comes to art history, the traditional canon has not necessarily been very inclusive. So how are the histories of art being rewritten today? Are the stories of different communities being retold and why is it important that we learn from this realignment? We will look at the role of the artist in representing the nation and influencing the debate on migration, inclusion, and societal change.

The European soccer teams Manchester United, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are all valued at over $4 billion by Forbes—almost three times their value 10 years ago. The four major US leagues were historically perceived as trophy assets, but now 87 percent of the teams have positive operating incomes, according to Forbes. So is there an investment case for institutional investors to engage and participate alongside entrepreneurs and financiers?

In Latin America (and the Caribbean), the estimated gap between current levels of development financing and the level needed to meet the SDGs is estimated at over $600 billion annually. At the heart of the call to move from "billions" to "trillions" in development finance is a multifaceted approach to financing the SDGs, which includes refining the role that multilateral development institutions play. In this private session, we will examine strategies for enhanced resource mobilization and the role that multilateral institutions can play in devising actions to crowd in additional private-sector investment and turn the SDGs into reality across Latin America.
