    Building Bridges: Engaging the Institutional Investor in Global Infrastructure

    7:45 AM – 7:00 PM

    Building on the success of our inaugural meeting in 2013, the objective of this year’s event is to examine the burgeoning gap between global infrastructure needs and funding sources and the role of sovereign wealth funds, government pension funds, and other institutional investors in bridging that gap. We will gather representatives from the institutional investor community together with policy makers, service providers, academics, and public sector partners from recipient countries to explore the scale and progress of global infrastructure funding in both developed and emerging economies, the critical challenges to institutional investment in infrastructure, and the innovations that have supported the rise of global infrastructure as an evolving asset class.

    Think Tank

    5:00 PM – 5:30 PM

    Think tanks have been a vital cog in the American foreign policy machine, functioning as both a generator and sounding board for new ideas. The evolution of think tanks, reflecting deeper trends in American society over the past few decades, raises some interesting questions about whether they can continue to play such a role. Has the marketplace of ideas changed, and have think tanks adapted to that change? Has political polarization shunted foreign policy expertise aside? What role do funders play in influencing the output of think tanks? What is the relationship between the academy and think tanks?
