Investment and Investment Finance: The Supply and Demand of Long Term Finance

Moscow, Russia

February 13-14, 2013



In response to the global financial crisis, policy measures, such as improving liquidity and bailing financial institutions, were devised to counter sharp contractions in output and seizure of financial markets. Subsequently, the post crisis agenda shifted from these short-term firefighting measures to strengthening the long-term stability of the global economy in order to reinvigorate growth. This new emphasis was reflected in Russia’s decision to set long-term finance as a G20 priority for 2013 and in response our seminar in Moscow focused on long-term finance as a means for strengthening the new financial architecture. Aware that there are many caveats to making long term financing and investment a key driver, conference participants identified local bond markets as a major channel to realize these objectives.  Development of local bond markets not only would open up financing for longer term projects such as infrastructure development and capital investment, it would funnel the savings and investment needs of economies through involving new institutional investors. Indeed the development and deepening of local bond markets would help alleviate the problem of certain “missing markets,” broadening financing intermediation, investment and growth.
