The Future of Capitalism

This is the second in a series of posts on impact investing for MMI’s membership

“Capitalism and private initiative are really key to drive progress, innovation, new products and services. But we need to update capitalism.”

--Dr. Maximilian Martin, Founder, Impact Economy

At Impact Economy, we spend a lot of time thinking about the future of capitalism. We know that the financial opportunities for tomorrow will not look like those of the past. Demographic shifts, environmental challenges, and the growing demand of the global poor will shape business investments going forward.

This has many implications for the money management sector. Impact Economy continues to research these shifting trends to determine how MMI’s membership and others can benefit from, and help shape, the future of capitalism; watch the video below in order to learn more about our work and how we can “update” capitalism.

In the video, our founder, Dr. Maximilian Martin, provides an overview of how Impact Economy tackles today’s challenges. He ultimately ends on a positive note, saying: “I would like to think that I can help leave a world behind that my children will think is not in shambles, and other parents will join this quest so we can pass on something we are proud of.”
