Launched in Paris after the publication of the European Commission Green Paper on the Long-Term financing of the European Economy, in July 2013, the European Long-Term Investors Association (ELTI) gathers 27 European long-term financial institutions. With a combined balance sheet of € 2.45 trillion, ELTI’s goal is to promote long-term investment in close alignment with the objectives and initiatives developed by the European Union to foster sustainable, smart and inclusive growth and job creation.

Given the rapid changes our societies are undergoing and the 'short-termist' tendency of many economic and political actors, the need for long-term vision is more important than ever. The implementation of far-reaching global objectives such as building sustainable infrastructure for sustainable investment, fighting climate change or innovating in our resources consumption and in production technologies is not only an absolute necessity: it is also a path, in itself, to recovery from the current crisis on a new basis to avoid its return and ensure the well-being of future generations.
