Our hearts go out to the victims and families impacted by the devastating earthquake in Morocco. In addition to holding the people of Morocco in your thoughts and prayers, the IIF encourages donations to reputable organizations, including our Official Charity - World Central Kitchen.

The 2023 Annual Membership Meeting (AMM) was held in Marrakech, Morocco on Thursday, October 12 through Saturday, October 14. The three-day program provided the opportunity for the IIF to convene our global membership in a transformational market where attendees had access to make business connections with peers and clients, as well as hear from some of the most compelling thought leaders across the financial services industry. 

Attendees heard from CEOs and Chairs of major financial institutions along with influential global and regional policymakers and experts. In addition to IIF's hallmark ‘Views from the C-Suite’ and ‘In Conversation with Policymakers’ sessions, our annual meeting offered a variety of panels on critical issues impacting global markets and the world economy including:

+ The Global Regulatory Agenda: Evolving Trends and Emerging Priorities 
+ Financing A Just Transition in Emerging Markets 
+ Inflation and Debt
+ The Road to Net Zero 
+ Shifting Risk Landscape for the Global Financial Sector
+ Geopolitical and Economic Changes: Opportunities and Challenges for the Middle East & Africa
+ Data, AI, Digital Transformation, and CBDCs - the future of finance in a digital economy
