Cross Border Barriers to Fund Distribution in the EU

Functioning well but room for improvement


In June last year, the European Commission launched a consultation on the cross-border distribution of investment funds (UCITS, AIFs, ELTIFs and EuVECAs/EuSEFs)1 with the aim to identify the key remaining barriers to marketing and selling investment funds across the EU. This consultation, as one of the initiatives in support of the creation of a Capital Markets Union (CMU), highlights the importance a truly performing single market holds in allowing further growth and efficiency for funds, as well as in helping mobilize and allocate capital from the adequate sources to the right projects all over Europe, and delivering better value and innovative products to investors.

This effort to identify the remaining barriers, and the ways to eliminate them, is an initiative that has been welcomed by an important number of stakeholders both from the private sector and the public authorities’ sphere, and it has activated them in responding to the Commission’s call for input. Indeed, the goal of the European Commission to seek further ways to deepen the single market for investment funds is a widely shared one, as it is critical for widening the opportunities for European citizens to save and invest, as well as for facilitating better outcomes both for savers and the wider European economy.
