ALFI response to European Commission consultation on Legislative proposal for an EU framework on crowd and peer to peer finance

- ALFI statements

This initiative is part of the Commission's priority of establishing a Capital Market Union (CMU). Broadening access to finance for SMEs, in particular for innovative companies, start-ups and scale-ups, is at the heart of the 2015 CMU Action Plan.1 Access to finance remains difficult for these firms, particularly when they move from the start-up into the expansion phase. This is why the CMU Action Plan places great emphasis on strengthening the different sources of alternative finance, including crowdfunding. With appropriate safeguards and investor protection measures, the scaling-up of crowdfunding across the Single Market can be facilitated so that it becomes a more important source of market-based financing in support of job creation and growth.
