Institute Chairman Mike Milken sits down with legendary investors Ken Griffin of Citadel and Stephen Schwarzman of Blackstone Group to discuss not only their investment outlooks for various asset classes, but also the social and geopolitical trends informing those opinions. Among their many areas of concern and focus are America’s competitiveness, education reform, the U.S.-China relationship, corporate governance, political polarization, regulation, taxation and central bank policies. What are the most important lessons they’ve learned – from both their successes and their failures? What responsibilities come with managing giant asset pools? What keeps these leaders awake at night? What drives their philanthropic initiatives? And what’s next for their personal efforts and their firms?

Speakers:
Ken Griffin, Founder and CEO, Citadel
Stephen Schwarzman, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder, The Blackstone Group

Moderator:
Michael Milken, Chairman, Milken Institute
