Zooming in on the features and effects of the ELTIF framework

Interview with Dr. Julia Backmann, LL.M. Vice President (legal) at BVI

Executive Summary

In April 2015, the European legislators adopted a new investment fund framework designed for investors who want to put money into companies and projects for the long term.
