Today, we have dozens of exchanges,...

such as the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ, to tell us the value of companies like Apple or GM. We have commodity markets, such as The Chicago Board of Trade that prices gold, oil, corn, and weather. We even have created digital assets (Bitcoin, Ethereum) out of thin air.

Amazingly, we do not have any equivalent mechanism to value human capital or the natural assets and ecosystem processes that make life on earth possible and bountiful.

Through our innovative financial products and trading platform we bring valuable Intrinsic Assets into the financial system. Doing so allows participants to invest in and protect precious resources, potentially worth trillions of dollars, and elevates intrinsic assets onto a level playing field with other asset classes. 

This approach generates market prices for intrinsic assets supplying invaluable signaling to economic decision-making, informing the true cost of producing goods and services. And, critically, the process transforms intrinsic value into financial capital. This capital can be used to protect and grow intrinsic assets and power the transformation to a fully sustainable economy. A key aspect of IVE is that the capital formed is based on the value of the assets themselves and does not rely on transfers of wealth to be successful. 

IVE is the next step in the evolution of dealing with externalities. Building on past approaches — regulation, tax policy, artificial markets (such as cap and trade), IVE creates a true, natural market solution to the problem of externalities.
