LPEA and ALFI responded to the European Commission’s consultation on the review of the European Venture Capital Funds (EuVECA) regulation (No 345/2013) and European Social Entrepreneurship Funds (EuSEF) regulation (No 346/2013).
These specialist venture capital investment funds have been available since 2013 but only a small number of funds set up as EuVECA and EuSEF have so far been launched.
This consultation supports the objective of Capital Markets Union which is to facilitate a greater flow of capital from willing investors into the real economy. This consultation is part of the Action Plan package and takes up the replies received in the CMU consultation. It requests more details as to where and how the regulations could be changed without reducing the existing levels of investor protection.
