Active Investor Stewardship

This project aims to mobilize the investor community as part of the Forum’s broader efforts on long-termism. It will identify key investors and corporations who, driven by long-term risk and return considerations, engage actively with one another to mitigate risk and to seek financial opportunity in addressing long-term challenges such as climate change, technological disruption, and corporate governance. This is not responsible or impact investing, but an attempt to better align the investment value chain, thereby enabling investors and their portfolio companies to jointly place appropriate emphasis on the long-term trends that create value. The project will utilize the Forum’s platform to connect insightful investors with like-minded corporate leaders, drawing in particular upon related efforts led by the Forum’s Community of Chairmen (CoC), International Business Council (IBC), and signatories of the Compact for Responsive and Responsible Leadership.
