Goals and Activities

Joint Collaboration

Maintaining a permanent and constructive dialogue on long-term financing with European financial institutions whilst representing, promoting and defending the shared interests of our Members. This includes informing the EU institutions on the role and potential of the Members as agencies for long-term financing and promoting convergence and common positions in response to consultations launched by the European Commission.


Access to Finance

Developing the concept of long-term investment within the economic and financial sector whilst strengthening cooperation at an operational level, acting as long-term financiers and facilitating access between European and national financing schemes.


Sharing of Expertise

Strengthening the access of the Members to information on matters related to the EU and exchanging information and experiences amongst Members. This includes sharing the Association's interest and advice to the EU with regards to the promotion of long-term investment and informing its Members on the discussions, initiatives and measures conducted by the EU institutions.


Knowledge & mutual support

Promoting academic research on long-term investments and exerting influence on EU Institutions by acting as a common interlocutor and Member spokesperson without prejudice to the separate freedom of expression of each Member. These include initiating and publishing research programmes and case studies and holding conferences on behalf of our Members.




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.
