During this webinar, SHIFT TO's Jaap van Dam will present his thinking about Long Term Investing. He will start from the perspective of Focusing Capital on the Long Term initiative and address the role long horizon asset owners could play in:
1. Harvesting higher and better quality returns for their beneficiaries and
2. Creating better societal outcomes in the form of a higher productivity of invested dollars and a smaller negative societal footprint e.g. in the form of a smaller carbon footprint.
Between thinking and implementing, there are major hurdles such as agency issues and the lack of a sound theory.
