The Prosperity LadderThe Legatum Prosperity Ladder is a simple framework illustrating how we allocate financial, intellectual and human capital in order to promote prosperity.

At Legatum we apply our global investment experience to allocate capital where it may deliver the highest returns, whether measured in financial terms or in positive life change. By actively seeking opportunities that emerge during times of transition, we direct resources where they will be productively employed – from the developed global markets where public capital is readily available at low cost, to the billions of people at the bottom of the pyramid who have extremely limited access to capital.

Applying proven, common-sense ideas, we learn from our real world experience and the insights generated from the activities of the Legatum Institute, the Legatum Prosperity Index™, and the Legatum Center at MIT. In cases where standardised metrics are not available - particularly in determining social impact - we develop new measures to evaluate performance and ensure accountability.
