OECD project on institutional investors and 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.
