What We Research
Future of Financial Services
In the next decade, financial services will blend algorithms, AI, tokenization and human advice in new ways to deliver truly personalized offerings. Digitization will impact stores of value, money, and assets, influencing policymakers to accelerate their efforts to keep up with an industry eager to reinvent itself.
The Next America
Americans’ lives are in perpetual flux. The once familiar passage to adulthood has given way to new and diverging paths to independence; fluid family formations, new sources of income, and multigenerational households complicate career paths and the experience of aging. Sociocultural trends like these demand new financial products and services.
New Business Foundations
New technologies such as AI, gaming platforms, and blockchains reshape how products and services are designed, built, and delivered. The business foundations powered by these and other emerging technologies will likely change how companies are organized and how money is made and invested.
Deep technologies focus on solving our hardest societal, engineering, and environmental challenges. Though practical applications are often many years away, advances in fields such as synthetic biology, robotics, quantum, and space exploration have the power to spawn entirely new markets, opportunities, and ways of living.
