The PRI has launched a discussion paper on Long-Term Mandates, building on existing research, in particular, the International Corporate Governance Network’s model mandate. The paper presents a range of potential ways in which investors can ensure a long-term investment horizon.
This opens a two-month consultation to identify leading investor practice in mandate design, and seeks to accelerate the shift from analysis to implementation, in order to achieve long-term sustainable returns and improve system wide capital allocation.
If you are a PRI signatory, please email details of your approach to long-term investment, and in particular mandate design, to Will Martindale by Friday 12 September. We also welcome examples of leading academic research on long-term investment.
