Space Value Foundation recognises that financial education is the most reliable way to bring about long-term changes in the mindset that governs investments, their valuation, and execution. 

Space Value Foundation's educational objective

Our primary objective is to change the underlying value paradigm of investment decisions and monetary value, in public and private spheres, in projects and companies, in instruments and markets. Such that, space impact (across all layers) is factored into the financial economics of those decisions at the outset – rather than after the event when impact has already occurred. We aim to achieve such a transformation through a dynamic content offering online, workshops and seminars, and a proactive engagement with clients, partners, and other sustainability initiatives.

“The current analytical framework of the finance discipline, in industry and academia, rests on two core principles: Risk and Return and Time Value of Money. This focus reveals a value paradigm built and defined by Risk and Time parameters, without any formal consideration of Space as an analytical dimension, nor any assessment of impact on space as our physical context. A review of finance literature in industry and academia supports this observation.”

The Space Value of Money, 2022

Rethinking Finance Beyond Risk and Time

Space—as an analytical dimension and our physical context—is missing from the current financial value framework and equations that guide millions of investment and capital decisions around the world. 

Risk and Return and Time Value of Money dominate and define the entire imaginative space within which theory and applied models are developed and taught. 

Commonly used textbooks in finance substantiate this claim. Toggle below to see further examples of finance literature and models, all built exclusively in a risk-time universe.
