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.
The European Council agreement in July 2020 marks a step forward in European construction. The European idea is thereby reinforced. It also sent contradictory signals with less means for European instruments managed by the European Commission.

After the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the decision of most governments in Europe (as well as other continents) to prioritise “social distancing”, it immediately became clear that these decisions will have a significant impact on the global economy. All governments are reflecting how to support self-employed, solo-entrepreneurs, SMEs on to mid-caps and globally-acting conglomerates, airports and healthcare systems as well as companies in the fields of export, tourism and in many other areas. European Member States also introduced completely new measures with the Maastricht criteria becoming less of a priority.Read more ...
