EQT AB is proud to announce its membership with FCLTGlobal, a non-profit organization with the mission of rebalancing capital markets to support a long-term, sustainable economy, and stimulating long-term behaviour across the investment value chain. Members are more than 60 leading asset owners, asset managers, and corporations from around the world. It is a rapidly growing initiative as moving financial markets to the longer-term perspective is one of the most important system changes needed in order to provide companies with space to make the right investment decisions. Becoming a member of FCTLGlobal perfectly aligns with EQT’s purpose of future-proofing companies and making a positive impact with everything we do.
FCLTGlobal develops research and tools to drive long-term value creation, with the guiding principle that working toward short-term financial targets comes at the expense of long-term value creation. Despite the fact that data shows that long-term-oriented investors deliver superior performance, and long-term-oriented companies outperform in terms of revenue, earnings, and job creation, the focus in global investing largely remains skewed towards short-term performance.
“The private capital industry has a huge opportunity to change this mindset, to think longer-term as well as to combine financial returns with a quest to improve the societies. And our industry has the power to make a real difference with a governance model and active ownership approach that gets things done. We are deeply impressed by FCTLGlobal’s mission and research-based approach, and are humbled by teaming up with them and all the other members, and taking an even more active role in the movement of tackling short-termism and promoting sustainable growth,” says Christian Sinding, CEO and Managing Partner at EQT AB.
“To FCLTGlobal, it’s important that our members lead by example, and EQT is showing a strong commitment to integrate sustainability and long-term perspectives into their entire value creation process. We look forward to welcoming EQT and to collaborating on the various parts of our upcoming research agenda”, says Sarah Keohane Williamson, Chief Executive Officer, FCLTGlobal
