Long term value
The health of corporations and financial markets – and public trust in both – is critical to economic growth. Our collective future strongly depends on vibrant and sustainable capital markets – and market participants have a role to play in ensuring long-term value creation that benefits all.
Today, a company’s value is increasingly reflected not just in its short-term financial performance, but also by intangible assets such as intellectual property, talent, brand and innovation. However these are not fully captured by traditional financial statements.
The Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism
Over the past 18 months, the Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism has brought together over 30 of the world’s leading companies and investors, representing almost $30 trillion of assets under management, to tackle these challenges. The project has sought to develop new metrics and methods that help businesses measure and articulate the value they create for a broad range of stakeholders.
One of the project’s key components was the further development of EY’s Long-Term Value (LTV) framework which was tested and validated by asset owners, asset managers and companies. The aim was to create standardised metrics to help measure how companies deliver value for all stakeholders.More work is needed to build on these results, but the Embankment Project for Inclusive Capitalism represents an important step forward.
