The ICI was established in the summer of 2012 as the legacy vehicle of the Task Force for Inclusive Capitalism, which was made up of business leaders and co-chaired by Dominic Barton, Global Managing Director, McKinsey & Company, and Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, CEO, EL Rothschild.
The Task Force convened to identify solutions to the dislocations caused by developments in Anglo-Saxon capitalism over the last 30 years – developments exacerbated by the financial crisis of 2008. Its findings have led the ICI to focus on three areas.
Culture, values and trust: Improving the ethics of the business world.
Economic opportunity: Ensuring that the labour force is not left behind by the great period of innovation that is currently occurring.
The long-term: Breaking the cycle of short-termism by promoting the kind of business investment that provides sustainable job creation and economic growth.
