On the occasion of President Juncker’s 2016 State of the Union address, the European Commission has set out the next steps to accelerate the completion of the Capital Markets Union (CMU), a key building block of the Commission’s Investment Plan for Europe. It seeks to give businesses access to alternative, more diverse sources of funding so they can thrive. It makes Europe’s financial system more stable and allows capital to move more freely across borders in the Single Market so that it can be put to good use to support our companies and offer Europeans more investment opportunities.
The European Long-Term Investment Funds (ELTIFs) Regulation is part of a far-reaching agenda that is trying to realise the European ambitions for a new era of growth; building a symbiotic cooperation between real economy and financial markets. This Regulation is to allow investors, across the EU, to participate in the strengthening of the European economy by investing in a new vehicle that will focus on infrastructure and other real assets designed to enable social and economic benefit. This innovative product should enable new money, a lot of it currently placed in cash and deposit accounts, to be invested by smaller investors and high net worth individuals into the EU economy through real assets.
