03 June 2014 World Bank - Singapore Infrastructure Finance Summit

This Amsterdam OECD/APG workshop fell under the scope of the OECD Project on Institutional Investors and Long-Term Investment and G20-OECD work on long-term financing. ELTI was represented by the Secretary-General Mr. Dominique de Crayencour and other participants included representatives from pension funds, insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds and asset managers as well as officials and experts from ministries of finance, central banks and international organisations.

Discussions focused on long-term pension investment strategies under risk-based regulation, also exploring the question of whether regulation matters. The issues of riskiness and procyclicality in pension asset allocation and the regulatory challenges facing long-term illiquid assets were also discussed at length (add- link to ELTI website to see: other publications on Long-Term Investment)

The OECD-led Task Force on Institutional Investors and Long-Term Financing, is open to G20, FSB, APEC members and relevant international organisations, and works on developing high-level principles intended to help governments facilitate and promote long-term investment by institutional investors, particularly among institutions such as pension funds, insurers and sovereign wealth funds, that typically have long duration liabilities and consequently can consider investments over a long period.

In June 2014 the Singapore G20/OECD Task Force members met to endorse these principles and further develop High-level principles principles on Long-Term Investment Financing by Institutional Investors for consideration at the previous G20 Summits.
