ELTIF reform critical to boost finance options for EU SMEs, says AIMA and the ACC

Related Topics

AIMA and the ACC strongly support the reform of the European Long Term Investment Fund (ELTIF) regime introduced in November by the European Commission and have published a position paper that details further refinements of the proposals.

ELTIFs are funds that invest in unlisted companies and projects, focusing on parts of the economy that often lacks access to traditional finance. As banks continue to retrench, ELTIFs can mobilise the growing levels of private capital to address the financing gap felt by SMEs and mid-market companies throughout the EU.

AIMA and the ACC welcome the proposals to expand the eligible assets that ELTIFs are permitted to invest in and the operational flexibility that has been introduced for ELTIF managers. Combined with the more efficient distribution of ELTIFs to retail investors, these reforms will ensure that ELTIFs are aligned to the needs of their investors while also offering them attractive returns.
