Much has been written about what led up to the 2008 Collapse of the global banking, funds management and insurance systems.
Too little – comparatively – has been proposed as new designs for
- safely creating money (banking),
- investing it meaningfully in the real economy (funds management) and
- mitigating against undesired outcomes (insurance).
Urban Logic has researched new designs and tools to leverage the digital age of finance to achieve sustainable outcomes.
