Why I want to SHIFT TO Long-term investing

SHIFT TO for me is an inspirational journey into changing the paradigm of institutional investing into investing for a solid financial and healthy future. On this journey it is important that we continue to learn and challenge existing practices and cross the borders of our comfort zones and existing knowledge. SHIFT TO can build bridges between the academic world and practice, between the financial sector and the sectors in which they invest, between ‘what is now’ and ‘what is gonna be next’. SHIFT TO can contribute by brining together PEOPLE and KNOWLEDGE that together can make the SHIFT TO long-term investing.
