By Franck Silvent on Paris Innovation Review

Dans les pays développés et particulièrement en Europe, l'investissement est à la peine depuis la crise de 2008. Pourtant l'argent est abondant et les besoins ne manquent pas, notamment en ce qui concerne les investissements porteurs de croissance à long terme. Mais les investisseurs privés sont comme engourdis. Comment sortir de cette morosité? Les investisseurs institutionnels sont au centre du jeu et, parmi eux, banques publiques et caisses des dépôts peuvent jouer un rôle décisif. Comment ces institutions séculaires sont-elles revenues sur le devant de la scène?
In developed countries, particularly in Europe, investment has been sluggish since the 2008 crisis. And yet, money is abundant and there are many needs, especially in regard to long-term, growth-enhancing investments. But private investors are paralyzed. Is there any way out of this down-beat economic environment? Institutional investors are at the center of the game. Among them, public banks and deposits funds can play a significant role. How have these secular institutions returned in the spotlight?
