Study on “the Social performance of the MIVs : what are the lessons learned from the SRI experience” by Ludovic Urgeghe (CERMi, University of Mons)- Publications
The Microfinance Investment Vehicles industry is today at a bottleneck. In the context of a damaged reputation due to recent crises, the whole field of microfinance and especially the investment vehicles, funded by public money and by socially inclined investors, have to demonstrate and justify their commitment to social returns.
This guidance paper presents the initial results of various ALFI working groups on market risk, liquidity risk, credit and counterparty risk as well as operational risk, with a special focus on the key risk topics newly addressed by UCITS IV. This publication is designed to assist market players in the practical operational implementation of these regulations.
