Washington, D.C., May 28, 2014 - The Institute of International Finance, the global association of the financial industry, today announced the first class of the Institute's new Future Leaders Group.

"Beyond the impact of regulatory changes and technological innovation, the future of our industry will be determined, in large part, by those who lead it," said Tim Adams, president and CEO of the IIF. "Our Future Leaders program is meant to bring some of the brightest emerging talent in the industry together with current leaders to discuss pressing issues and to learn from one another."

The Future Leaders program was formed by the IIF's Board of Directors to recognize young leaders within the financial industry and to foster ties between rising stars from different regions and backgrounds.

Participants, who are all 40 or under, were nominated by their Institutions based on a track record of achievement within the institution and their potential, in the nominating Institutions' view, to become a future leader in global finance.

The first class of Future Leaders will gather in London the first week of June on the eve of the IIF's Spring Membership Meeting and again in October before the Institute's Annual Membership Meeting in Washington.
