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.
On 7 December 2022, Invest-NL, together with the European Association of Long-Term Investors (ELTI), organised a Workshop on 'Impact Investing' in Amsterdam.
Supportive of the goals of the EU Action Plan on Sustainable Finance, there is a huge role to play for National Promotional Banks and Institutions in facilitating societal transitions to enable a sustainable future.
This peer-to-peer learning event was aimed to exchange the latest insights around impact investment policies and how these can be put in practice.
Special thanks to the very inspirational guest speakers: Saara Mattero from the Ilmastorahasto - The Finnish Climate Fund, Clément Damasse from Bpifrance, Cyril Gouiffès from the European Investment Fund (EIF) and Joanne De Jonge from Invest-NL.Read more ...

"Long-term investment, the keystone of a low-carbon, sovereign and competitive Europe"
Bernard Attali, Michel Derdevet and Laurent Zylberberg published a report (in French) which seeks to answer various questions on Geopolitical instability, the energy crisis, and on uncontrolled inflation. These are some of the many challenges that the European Union will have to face over the upcoming decades. They will obviously require massive and constant financial efforts over several decades. Long-term investment is therefore at the very heart of the issues facing the European Union. This is why it is urgent to develop and implement a real long-term investment strategy based on three pillars: increasing financing volumes, the mobilization of private capital and the establishment of an improved strategic vision.
