Alexandra Korijn: System change- What if investment approaches matched the complexity of the problems we are seeking to solve?
Life is inherently complex and very few phenomena occur in isolation. Despite this, humans have a strong urge to simplify difficult problems. While the ability to extrapolate and simplify is one of humanity’s great tools, what if the intricacy of the problems our societies face were better answered through taking a holistic approach and enacting complex solutions?
In this article, Katapult Foundation’s Alexandra Korijn explores how groups of investors are embracing holism to address cross-sectoral challenges with advanced solutions.
From climate change to inequality, impact investors are gathering both geographically and around specific sectors to foster solutions that recognise interconnectedness and address root problems. From regenerative farming initiatives in Mauritius to Web3, a systems based approach to investment is gaining momentum.
