This book offers a unique framework to understand how public institutions and private investors can collaborate to sustain long term investments (LTIs), with a specific focus on public-private partnership for infrastructure, blended finance mechanisms and impact investing.

Offering a holistic approach to long term investing, which encompasses both infrastructure and corporate innovation and sustainability strategies, chapters explore how collaborations can mobilize resources, overcome market failures and maximize impacts. Furthermore, it provides a deeper understanding on LTIs, both in terms of the sustainable investment approaches that investors are progressively adopting, and in terms of the main domains of LTIs such as infrastructure and corporate investments in research and innovation, sustainability, and circularity. The book also highlights how LTIs are essential to ensure the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, which represent an institutionalization of the concept of public value.

Public-Private Collaborations for Long-Term Investments will be critical reading for policy makers, investors and managers working in the public and private sector. The combination of cutting-edge insights and depth of knowledge rooted in the scientific literature will also be beneficial for scholars and students in the fields of public administration and management, infrastructure finance, and sustainability.
Critical Acclaim
‘The business of business is being redefined before our very eyes: inclusion, sustainability, impact and ESG are now integrated into most investment decisions. Much more needs to be done as Agenda 2030 will not be met till “all hands on deck”. This book can serve as a good starting point for this critical collaboration.’
– Royston Braganza, Grameen Capital

‘This book highlights the importance of activating private capital to close the infrastructure gap and creating stronger collaboration between the public and private sectors. This will help to drive economic recovery in the short term whilst driving longer term economic and social outcomes.’
– Marie Lam-Frendo, Global Infrastructure Hub

‘This book is an excellent reference to university and master students, executives and civil servants, academic researchers and many others that are keen to learn more about enabling long term investments and public private collaborations.’
– Iliyana Tsanova, European Commission
