About Us

Our Approach

Innovation is our business. Since the 1990s, Mosaic Collateral Asset Management, or M•CAM®, has been a leader in bringing the complex world of innovation data and management into the financial markets. From our pioneering work in creating the world’s first standards-based innovation collateralization financial products for banking and securities, to our work in grassroots innovator enablement, to our patent quality assurance programs, M•CAM® International makes the intangible investable.

Using our industry-leading data aggregation and interrogation systems (artificial intelligence); global finance, procurement, and innovation data; unparalleled public policy involvement; and our abiding respect for global diversity, M•CAM® International continues to make the Innovation Economy accessible to investors.

Our groundbreaking Innovation α® algorithm, which uses artificial intelligence to analyze unstructured data, enables the qualitative analysis of Intangible Assets (IA) and Intellectual Property (IP) including contracts, patents, licenses, copyrights, designs, trademarks, permits, and more. Innovation α® powered the CNBC IQ 100, as well as the indexes behind our ETFs: INAG, INAU, and TWAR.
