This study is part of the BETTER FINANCE #FundResearch project, a research activity aimed at providing qualitative and quantitative assessments of the EU market for “retail” investment funds, focusing on Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (UCITS) and Alternative Investment Funds (AIFs). This paper looks into the market for European Long-Term Investment Funds (ELTIFs) for individual, non-professional (“retail”) investors and seeks to identify what hampers its uptake and development.
