Capital extended for a term of greater than a year. In both investing and personal finance, long-term financing often takes the form of a loan with a payback period of longer than one year. Examples of long-term financing include a 30 year mortgage or a 10-year Treasury note. Equity is another form of long-term financing, such as when a company issues stock to raise capital for a new project.
