Cornerstone Capital CEO Erika Karp recently participated in BSR’s annual conference, themed “Be Bold.”  She shared her views on the shifting dynamics of the capital markets in recent years and how these changes spurred her to form Cornerstone. Erika also presented her vision for a convergence of priorities across capital markets constituents (particularly asset owners), corporates, regulators and academia in support of investing for long-term, sustainable shared benefit.

Paraphrasing Albert Einstein, Erika notes that imagination is more important than intelligence — but it must be accompanied by execution and pragmatism.
