Long Finance aims to “improve society’s understanding and use of finance over the long-term”, in contrast to the short-termism that defines today’s financial and economic views. The immediate objective of the initiative is to establish a Foundation that can ignite global debate on long-term finance, by examining how commerce should enable and encourage environmental and social sustainability.

Enduring Value

In February 02010, Brian Eno, Stewart Brand, and Alexander Rose spoke at the Long Finance conference hosted by Gresham College in London. The conversation was moderated by Faisal Islam, an economics correspondent with Channel 4 news in the UK.

Long Finance is an initiative begun by Professor Michael Mainelli in 02007 to establish a World Centre Of Thinking On Long-Term Finance. The aim of the Long Finance Institute is "to improve society's understanding and use of finance over the long-term".
