The ''European Long-Term Investors Association'' represent a European-wide network of National Promotional Banks and Institutions (NPBIs) who offer financial solutions tailored to the specific needs of their respective country and economy. As of May 2020, the association gathers 31 European long-term investors from 23 Member States across the European Union and Turkey. With a combined balance sheet of € 1.7 trillion, ELTI's goal is to promote long-term investment in close alignment with the objectives and initiatives developed by the European Union in order to foster sustainable, smart and inclusive growth and job creation. Multilateral financial institutions complement the activities at national level with specific cross-border solutions or investments with a European impact. Following the specific public mission of each member the business model of each institution differs from country to country including different products and approaches. This is the same for multilateral ELTI members. Most of the members offer various debt-products but not all members have a mandate for investment in equity. The Association promotes and attracts quality long-term investment in the real economy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ELTI members held their 2021 General Assembly in Brussels this year. After more than 18 months of virtual meetings, the participants highly appreciated the possibility of discussions with their colleagues from NPBIs of more than 20 EU Member States. The economic situation during the COVID-19 crisis, the outlook for the EU recovery, the contribution of NPBIs to fight climate change as well as the implementation of InvestEU dominated the discussions. President Laurent Zylberberg also welcomed representatives from the European Commission, the European Investment Bank and the European Investment Fund who participated intensively in the discussions.Read more ...
In 2018 the European Commission (EC) made a promise: It would replace complex rules and procedures relating to the implementation of EU funds with a single, user-friendly rulebook focusing on results. ELTI members very much welcomed this approach as well as the real simplifications stemming from it and they continue to welcome any new real simplification measures. ELTI members are typically directly or indirectly subject to the EU Financial Regulation when a) implementing structural funds, b) implementing instruments of development cooperation, c) as intermediaries to the EIF and, this is new, d) in the context of InvestEU.Read more ...

Through the European Green Deal process, which began in December 2019, a great change was seen when it came to the EU Green Deal and with regards to the Circular Economy, especially within the industrial sectors. The Border Carbon Regulation, which will come into effect in the coming period, is important for the Turkish industries and for Turkey's export strategy. In this context, it comes to the fore that significant investments may be required for the European Green Deal and Circular Economy. Where Turkey is considered, it is of great importance to involve the private sector in adaptation investments, which cannot gain importance only by transferring public resources.
Having adopted sustainability and inclusion as its core business model, TSKB initially released its “European Green Deal and Circular Economy Theme Study” as part of its mission to implement Turkey's industrial transition with our stakeholders. While the economic and social effects of the risks stemming from climate change are starting to be seen clearly, the regulations taken towards decarbonization have come to the fore. Within this axis, which can be seen in this report, TSKB aims to examine the effects of the EU Green Consensus and the circular economy concept in Turkey.Read more ...
