Enterprises’ access to capital is decisive for economic growth in society. The more financing sources for the enterprises, the more robust funding.
“Banks and mortgage credit institutes are traditionally the major financing sources for Danish enterprises, and they are also the traditional focus area for the Danish FSA. However, there are a number of economic advantages from enterprises gaining broader access to capital. For instance, many enterprises experienced limited financing possibilities during the latest financial crisis. Therefore, together with EIB, we are pleased to bring this important issue up for discussion,” says the Director of the Danish FSA, Jesper Berg.
“Having access to a broad range of financing options provides firms with better opportunities for innovation”, says EIB Chief Economist Debora Revoltella, highlighting that bank credit may not be well suited for investment in intangible assets which are often hard to collateralise
Brian Mikkelsen, Minister of Industry, Business and Financial Affairs, will be the keynote speaker at the conference, where a number of leading executives from the Danish corporate and financial sector will, among other things, discuss the Danish investment climate and how players other than credit institutions may contribute to expanding the financing options of the enterprises.
