Leadership 2050: Katherine Garrett-Cox

'Ask yourself: what difference am I making?'

In episode 2 Andrew White talks to Katherine Garrett-Cox, Managing Director and CEO of Gulf International Bank UK (GIB), about the key role asset management has in supporting sustainable development.

Katherine has more than 30 years’ experience in the finance sector. At GIB she is, as she puts it, 'right out on the edge of frontier' with a strategy that promotes mobilising and scaling capital in support of humanitarian investing and ocean finance. 

Here she talks to Andrew about long-term investing in companies that are solving the world’s most wicked problems and how the finance sector can help build resilience in communities that need it most.

Leadership 2050 is a podcast exploring the leadership we need to successfully transition to 2050. Who are the innovators setting the agenda for a more equal and sustainable future? In this series you’ll meet them. In each episode Andrew White talks to a visionary leader from the business community who is confronting the challenges humanity faces and finding solutions.

Dr Andrew White is a Senior Fellow of Management Practice at Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. His research and teaching focuses on how leaders transcend 21st century challenges such as disruptive technology change and the climate crisis. Also, how they create cultures that are diverse, inclusive, resilient and high performing, alongside the ongoing challenge of delivering profitable growth. At Oxford he directs the Oxford Advanced Management and Leadership Programme, and works with leaders from industry and governments across the world. This has given him a deep understanding of how good leaders create value and bad leaders destroy it. Never before has this been so important.
