 Join the leading investment banker and philanthropist for an urgent exploration into how Gen Z’s focus on ethics, climate change and purpose will transform capitalism as we know it.

In the next ten years there will be an unprecedented wealth transfer from the baby boomer generation to the young. There is no escaping this seismic event and, in fact, the transfer has already begun and is accelerating rapidly.

Soon the young will have the political and financial power, innovative technology and influence to throw out the past and implement the future they want. With constant exposure to social media and the 24h global news cycle, they have developed a unique sense of compassion and collectively high moral standards.

Ken Costa was nominated by Financial News as one of the top five dealmakers in Europe over the past 25 years and a seasoned investor formerly Chair of UBS Investment Bank (EMEA) and Chair of Lazard International and currently chair of Ken Costa Strategic. With his experience at the pinnacle of the finance community combined with his role as a mentor and coach for this new generation, Ken Costa is uniquely placed to both share the perspective of Boomers and comment on the vital contributions and remarkable societal and economic change that Gen Z and Millennials will bring about.

Join Ken as he shares his insights into the future of capitalism and the once-in-a-generation shift that is coming – and may just save the planet after humanity’s disastrous last 40 years.
