President of John Hancock, Jim Boyle speaks at today's Executive Forum

At this morning's Executive Forum, Jim Boyle, President of John Hancock Financial, explained why a globally successful company like John Hancock stays headquartered in Boston. While only 2% of their business comes from Massachusetts, Boyle explained that they maintain headquarters in Boston because "this is where the talent is."

Boyle then went on to discuss the need for change and the inevitability of change, as well as the current economic and political climate that institutions like his are currently facing. Boyle pointed to the Simpson-Bowles plan for deficit tax reduction, and warned that if the Super Committee doesn't meet their looming deadline, the country will face further loss in public confidence and more economic challenges.
