For the Long Term believes that an investment approach prioritizing long term financial thinking and the interests of all stakeholders is better for value creation and economic growth for not only current and future beneficiaries but for our country and economy as a whole.
By taking into account the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, and the community, companies are more likely to create sustainable and responsible business practices. This, in turn, leads to better relationships with all stakeholders, which results in increased loyalty, better brand reputation, and more stable revenue streams. In addition, companies that prioritize the needs of all stakeholders are more likely to innovate and adapt to changes in the market, which can lead to a competitive advantage and better financial performance in the long-term.
Overall, this stakeholder-focused, long-term approach leads to better relationships with all impacted parties, increased innovation, and a more positive impact on society and the environment. In contrast, an investment approach that focuses solely on maximizing profits for shareholders can lead to short-term thinking and decisions that may not be in the best interest of the company or its stakeholders in the long-term.
