Stanford's Research Initiative on Long-Term Investing ("SLTI")
Stanford University has launched a new research initiative to study long-term investing.
With more than 100 trillion in financial assets under management, the world's Long-Term Investors - i.e., pensions, sovereigns, insurance cos - quite literally put the capital in capitalism.
As such, any attempt to improve how capitalism functions or addresses critical challenges must begin with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the role that LTIs play in our world. This is what the Stanford Research Initiative on Long-Term Investing (SLTI) seeks to achieve: to analyze, understand, and augment the investment decisions of LTIs.
