Workshop on Data Collection for Long-term Investment
The Workshop on Data Collection for Long-term Investment took place on 10 May 2017 as part of the G20/OECD Task Force on Institutional Investors and Long-term Financing.
This Workshop was organised within the framework of the OECD Project on Institutional Investors and Long-Term Investment.
Discussions focused on relevant data collection exercises to support the future work of the Task Force, including work developed by the OECD including:
- Data Gaps in Long-term Investment and Mobilisation of Private Sector Financing
- Asset Allocation of Institutional investors
- Infrastructure as an Asset Class
The discussion built on relevant work including proposals for potential research agenda made in the OECD note: “Addressing Data Gaps in Long-term Investment: An Agenda for Research”. This note, developed jointly with the OECD Statistics Directorate (STD) and delivered to the G20, proposes a research agenda for addressing the main gaps in information for understanding the drivers and impediments of long-term investment. The note builds on the FSB, IMF, OECD and World Bank project from 2014 to develop a set of key quantitative indicators for long-term investment finance, which has been further developed in cooperation with other countries and international organisations (IOs), e.g. Canada, Italy, the BIS and the OECD.
