4th Edition of the Day of the Institutional Investor
Autore: Italian Banking Insurance and Finance Federation (FeBAF)
Ore: 15:00 - 17:00
Description of the event:
With the pandemic, financing companies with guarantee mechanisms was necessary and urgent to ensure their survival. In order to get the economy moving again after the emergency, it will also be necessary and urgent to allocate more resources from institutional investors to the capitalisation of medium-sized and medium-small enterprises. This is the message that will be conveyed at the Fourth Institutional Investor Day organised via the internet by FeBAF.
The total assets of institutional investors – such as insurance companies, funds, funds of funds, foundations – exceeded 1 trillion by the end of 2019. Realistic scenarios estimate the share of resources that could be allocated to corporate finance at around 2%, with a flow of around 20 billion. A limited shift towards capital for our medium-sized and medium-small enterprises would enable them to invest in innovation, expansion programmes and new jobs, with significant effects on GDP growth. These resources would be added to the European resources expected from 2021 onwards in the form of loans and Recovery Plan contributions.
In order to encourage institutional investors to intervene in the real economy, various types of action are essential, such as changes in regulations, supervision, and bureaucratic burdens that still penalise corporate finance, especially in the growth phase; appropriate tax incentives; expansion of the scope of Eltif (European long-term investment funds); innovative digital financing platforms; and overcoming cultural resistance in the area of corporate governance.
The Institutional Investor Day – organised this year together with the Guglielmo Marconi University – is the highlight of the activities of the inter-associative working group set up within FeBAF four years ago. It is the first appointment to approach the Rome Investment Forum 2020 on European issues, which will be held on a virtual platform on 14 and 15 December.
The first panel of the day will be moderated by Carlotta de Franceschi, President and Founder of Action Institute.
The event will take place online, on the Microsoft Teams platform. The webinar will be in Italian.
