Milken Institute | Research | Global Capital Markets
We view economic, environmental, social and regulatory policy issues through the lens of finance and with the conviction that the democratization of capital is the principal means for unlocking human potential to foster job creation and broad-based economic growth and prosperity.

We assess the development of capital markets worldwide, examine the access and distribution of capital across those markets, analyze risks and transparencies, and apply appropriate financial technologies to produce solutions that generate innovative access to capital for the financing of ideas, entrepreneurs and industries. We believe that transparent markets and the appropriate financial tools can be leveraged to support economic expansion and long-term growth.

Our work helps visionary leaders apply market-based solutions to economic and public policy challenges.

The Milken Institute Center for Global Capital Markets specializes in:

  • analyzing global capital structure in terms of firm, industry, market, economic, societal and regulatory risks
  • assessing global banking trends, currency and financial markets crisis risk, transparency, and the cost and availability of capital for entrepreneurs and economic development projects
  • putting financial technology to work in global markets to democratize capital and create jobs
  • convening researchers, policymakers, and business, financial, and practitioners for Financial Innovation Labs to create market-based solutions to business and public policy challenges

The Milken Institute has done a very good job of establishing itself as a place that does first-class research...It's information and data that I don't see anywhere else"

-- David Rubenstein
Co-Founder, The
Carlyle Group
The Milken Institute produces research of very high quality, research around issues that are topical, relevant and insightful. Most importantly, the research is objective. It's fair. It's nonpartisan....The Milken Institute's ideas are so powerful because they're based on the idea of free markets and the free flow of capital. That human capital, ideas and innovation combined with financial capital can change the lives of every person on this planet."

-- Kenneth Griffin
Founder and CEO, Citadel
