ABSF releases draft investment principles


The AOFM has today released for public comment its draft guiding investment principles for ABSF investment.  As previously envisaged, the investment guidelines are intended to be principles based rather than prescriptive.  

The principles are to be used for identifying transactions that will meet the Government’s primary objective of increasing the availability of finance to SMEs contributing to the development of market infrastructure that facilitates securitisation of SME loans.

The AOFM is not seeking comments on the broader investment assessment process but welcomes comments from market participants on the draft investment principles only, by no later than Thursday 6 June 2019.  

The ASF would be happy to work with its members and other industry participants to prepare a response to the AOFM.  In that regard, we would be happy to organise a meeting next week to discuss the draft investment principles and will propose a time shortly.  Alternatively, you may send your comments separately to the ASF or directly to the AOFM.

For more information please contact Robert Gallimore.
