Blending investment opportunities with social and economic development needs in frontier and emerging markets requires a birds eye view of the capital allocation requirements of a specific market. One model that provides a useful lens to view the capital needs is the Prosperity Ladder, developed by Legatum Investment Group.
The Prosperity Ladder illustrates the role of grant aid and philanthropy, microfinance and private capital in private sector development, and public capital and the capital markets. The real value of the Prosperity Ladder lies in its ability to illustrate the relationships between the allocation of capital and the stages of economic and social development beginning with abject poverty through towards developed markets and world scale enterprises.
