Recent regulatory changes in the EU and worldwide in addition to increased exposure to emerging markets will significantly impact the asset management industry in terms of investment decisions and distribution strategies. The Microfinance asset class, due to its transparent, social and investable nature is an attractive niche for asset managers, advisers and distributors, who strive to offer innovative fund products to satisfy the growing needs of private and institutional investors.
After a period of rapid growth in the past and recent set-backs, the Microfinance industry enters a new stage of its development – a stage of a more sustainable and responsible growth. A high degree of confidence exists that the stakeholders of Microfinance will be capable to address the different challenges the Microfinance industry currently faces by adopting best practice solutions to mitigate risk of over-indebtedness, to better protect clients and to enhance transparency.
