Underwriters of the 2018 Aspen Ideas Festival represent some of the foremost organizations in the U.S. and around the world. We are proud to present their ideas, their executives, and their important work in the following pages.
Bank of America
In an ever-changing world, the future belongs to the new generations of leaders and thinkers who dream, believe, and build through the power of connections. In 2017, Bank of America comes together with the Aspen Institute to share our passion to empower these connections: to insights and leaders from around the globe; to the issues that are shaping the world and society; and to our clients, friends and other attendees who come to Aspen to share in a mutual dialogue and celebration of ideas.
Bank of America is a US-based global financial institution, serving individuals, small and middle-market businesses, large corporations, and institutional investors with banking products and services, investment management, and the number one ranked global research platform. The company services all these customers and clients in the US, and companies, investors and institutions around the world.
We deliver on our purpose – to help make financial lives better through the power of every connection – through a strategy of responsible growth and a focus on our environmental, social and governance (ESG) leadership. Our approach in these areas is an important way we demonstrate the kind of company we are and how we deliver shareholder value. It reflects how we build and maintain trust and credibility as a company that people want to work for, invest in and do business with.
