Promoting long-termism

 About


Short-termism in financial markets has been widely identified as a cause of underinvestment, economic inefficiency and poor decision-making by corporations, undermining long-term value creation. To address this, the ILG, in cooperation with the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL), prepared a toolkit, which identifies a set of ten elements for investors who wish to design investment mandates that can help shift the investment chain towards responsible, long-term value creation.

Taking the long view: Long-term, sustainable investment mandates

Long view wide

Short-termism in financial markets has been widely identified as a cause of under-investment, economic inefficiency and poor decision-making by corporations, which undermines long-term value creation.

This work explores how long-term, sustainable investment practices can be delivered through investment mandates.

It provides a toolkit to address active listed equity mandates.

Applying the Long View to Investment Funds: Introducing the Long-term Disclosure Framework

Long Term Disclosure Framework

2018, ILG’s members decided to extend this work by developing a tool – the Long-term Disclosure Framework. 

The Long-term Disclosure Framework provides a tool for use by institutional and retail investors, and advisors, to assess the long-term orientation of the investment funds that they are being offered.
