2015 OECD-Euromoney Conference on Long-term Investment Financing

The third annual OECD-Euromoney Conference on Long-term Investment Financing took place at the Marriott Champs-Élysées Hotel on 19-20 November 2015.

The OECD and Euromoney Conferences have co-hosted this successful event within the framework of the OECD Project on Institutional Investors and Long-term Investment for the third year running. In close association with the G20, this project directly engages with end investors to overcome barriers in regulation and governance with a view to facilitating long-term investment by institutional investors.

World governments recognise the need to mobilise private finance for productive investment, while also maintaining the stability of financial markets. A prolonged period of low interest and growth rates has led investors to look beyond traditional asset classes and the event sought to promote long-term investment (LTI) in areas such as infrastructure, addressing both potential regulatory obstacles and market failures. Discussions focused on issues affecting long-term investment, including: asset allocation concepts; regulation; governance; energy; brownfield and greenfield infrastructure.

A complete summary of the conference discussion can be found here.

The conference brought together 150 high-level delegates including senior executives from some of the world’s largest pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies and regulators.

Over the two days we heard from an array of opinion leaders and key decision makers from around the world. These included Ignazio Visco, Governor, Banca d’Italia and John Kay, one of the UK’s leading economists who chaired the Review of UK Equity Markets and Long-Term Decision-Making.
