The Event Has Raised $51 Million For Robin Hood Since 2013 To Fight Poverty in New York City

New York, NY – October 12, 2022 – Robin Hood, New York City’s largest local poverty-fighting philanthropy, held the 10th annual J.P. Morgan/Robin Hood Investors Conference on October 11-12, 2022. The sold out event brought together more than 500 leaders from business, the investment arena, academia, and policy to discuss and share actionable money-making insights.

Since its inception in 2013, the event has raised $51 million through sponsorships and ticket sales. All proceeds from the conference fund programs that permanently move people out of poverty in New York City.

“As New Yorkers, we all recognize the critical role we play in taking care of our great city and its people,” said Mary Callahan Erdoes, CEO of J.P. Morgan Asset & Wealth Management. “J.P. Morgan is proud to partner with Robin Hood in its mission to help the more than 1.5 million people in our city struggling under the burden of poverty get a fair shot at succeeding in life.”

“As New York rebuilds itself, we have the opportunity to ensure everyone, regardless of what zip code they’re born in, has the same access to economic mobility,” said Paul Tudor Jones II, Co-Chairman and Chief Investment Officer of Tudor Investment Corporation. “This year’s annual J.P. Morgan/Robin Hood Investors Conference brought together leaders committed to that achievable goal. Their continued generosity, alongside J.P. Morgan’s support of the conference, allows every dollar Robin Hood raises to directly help more New Yorkers permanently get out of poverty.”

“The J.P. Morgan/Robin Hood Investors Conference’s success is a testament to Robin Hood’s mission, and I am ecstatic with the amount of money raised that will go towards programs that help New Yorkers escape the cycle of poverty,” said Anthony Bozza, Founder and Managing Partner at Lakewood Capital. “With ten years under our belt, the J.P.
