Jay-Z, Ashton Kutcher, Ray Dalio, and Stanley Druckenmiller lead the lineup of speakers at the ninth annual J.P. Morgan/Robin Hood Investors Conference, scheduled for June 16 in New York City. This year’s edition will be a virtual session.
The previous eight events raised $44 million to fight poverty in New York City. All proceeds from ticket sales go to fighting poverty. J.P. Morgan underwrites the entire conference cost.
“Robin Hood is deeply humbled to partner again with J.P. Morgan for the J.P. Morgan/Robin Hood Investors Conference 2021, which will benefit from our best speaker lineup to date,” said Sheila Kelly, chief advancement officer of Robin Hood. “This past year, the work of Robin Hood was more consequential than ever – providing relief and services to more than one million New Yorkers when they needed it most. And now we’re in a once-in-a-generation moment to rebuild a (new) New York to make our city more resilient and equitable than ever before. Every dollar raised from the conference will help to get families back on their feet, kids back on track, and New Yorkers back to work.”
Additional guests include His Royal Highness, Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al-Saud, Minister of Energy for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; Paul Tudor Jones II, Tudor Investment Corporation; and Yasser M. Mufti, Saudi Aramco.
Robin Hood spent more than $170 million to assist New Yorkers living in poverty in 2020. Learn more about the conference here.
