The partners of global investment firm Legatum: Christopher Chandler, Mark Stoleson, Alan McCormick and Philip Vassiliou founded the Legatum Institute in its original guise over 15 years ago, in 2007.
From inception, the Legatum Institute’s vision has been to “help others prosper” through its policy and educational work. With a focus on world-class research, writing and convening, the purpose of the Legatum Institute is to unlock how individuals, families, communities, and nations can become more prosperous.
Today, the Legatum Institute runs the Centre for National Prosperity, an initiative that carries out research into what prosperity is, how it can be measured and how it may be enhanced. Its flagship publication is the Legatum Prosperity Index, the leading index dedicated solely to the factors that drive and restrain national prosperity.
