OECD project on long-term investment

The increasingly short supply of long-term capital since the 2008 financial crisis has profound implications for growth and financial stability. Launched in 2012, this project aims to facilitate long-term investment by institutional investors such as pension funds, insurance companies, and sovereign wealth funds, addressing both potential regulatory obstacles and market failures.


Why is long-term investment important?

Patient capital allows investors to access illiquidity premia, lowers turnover, encourages less pro-cyclical investment strategies and therefore higher net investment rate of returns and greater financial stability.
Engaged capital encourages active voting policies, leading to better corporate governance.
Productive capital supports infrastructure development, green growth initiatives, SME finance, etc., leading to sustainable growth.
