Event Summary
A breakfast to explore how innovate finance can serve humanitarian needs, in partnership with the Humanitarian Finance Forum.


We are delighted to be hosting a breakfast event on 21 October 2021 for a new initiative that Russell Reynolds Associates is supporting. The Humanitarian Finance Forum (HFF) brings together leading experts from humanitarian institutions, international organizations, foundations, investment banks, insurance companies, and governments, with a common mission to increase the use of financial markets to address pressing global humanitarian challenges.

Special Adviser to the UN Secretary General, Dr. Al Meraikhi, will provide an introduction of the importance of the private sector in humanitarian response. Co-Founders of the Forum Cyrus Ardalan and Simon Meldrum will explain it rationale and role, elaborating on its aims to support the use of financial markets to address humanitarian needs. The purpose of the breakfast is to gather a small, engaged, cross-sector group to discuss the concepts and promote the Forum. 

The breakfast will be held at Russell Reynolds Associates, Almack House, 28 King Street, London, SW1Y 6QW from 8am and will finish by 10am. There is the option to join by Zoom, if preferred, and a light breakfast will be available for those in person.
