The UNLIMITED* project aims to challenge received wisdom regarding the nature of wealth and to question conventional notions of luxury, ownership and legacy. As a magazine that exists predominantly in print during a supposedly digital age, being counter-intuitive and reassessing prevailing opinions is part of Monocle’s DNA. UNLIMITED* is therefore the perfect forum for all of us and UBS to explore new ways of understanding global trends and to redefine the debate surrounding the place of wealth in a changing world.
