Long-Term Investing: An Optimal Strategy in Short-Term Oriented Markets
In recent decades, investment horizons have dramatically shortened. Two critical issues emerging in this environment are whether long-term investing is optimal; and if so, are particular mechanisms required to facilitate such investments? The conference Long-Term Investing: An Optimal Strategy in Short-Term Oriented Markets will begin delving into such concerns by examining:
- How does long-term investing add value?
- What incentive and governance mechanisms support the implementation of long-term investing?
- Can environmental and social corporate governance (ESG) factors increase the success of long-term investing?
- Are long-term forecasting and valuation path dependent?
By examining these issues the conference will bridge information gaps between academic research and fund managers about long-term investing in short-term oriented markets.
Please note that this event is by invitation only.
All conference events will be held on the third floow of Faculty House on Columbia University’s campus.
