Strengthening alternative investment funds in Slovenia
for the Securities Market Agency
The Commission has helped national authorities in Slovenia to strengthen alternative investment funds.
Slovenia’s ambition is to become a regional hub that supports alternative investment funds managers investing in Europe’s southeast region. However, private equity funds and real estate funds in Slovenia are still underdeveloped and need regulatory support.
The support provided by the Commission and a private provider consisted of an independent analysis of the regulatory and legal framework for alternative investment funds in Slovenia. It included studies, a gap analysis and the flagging and prioritising of areas for improvement.
The support also included workshops with a wide range of fund managers and market participants.
The support delivered the following results:
• a comprehensive analysis of alternative investment funds in Slovenia (private equity funds and real estate funds), with a legal review and regulatory recommendations.
And had the following impact:
• improved regulatory framework for alternative investment funds and a positive effect of the Slovenian capital markets.
