    It’s time for a fuller perspective on why capital markets matter.


    SIFMA represents hundreds of banks, broker-dealers and asset managers, all of whom share a key set of values: we are dedicated to promoting investor opportunity, access to capital for families and businesses, and an efficient market system that stimulates economic growth and job creation.

    Project Invested offers a fresh perspective on the role of capital markets in our nation’s economy. By providing a forum to explore and discuss key concepts that underlie the market economy, we hope to spark a conversation about the importance of capital markets in both private and public enterprises. The fact is that the story of capital markets reaches far beyond cities that are considered to be financial centers — the most significant impact they have is felt every day on Main Street.

    We believe that's a story worth telling.
