Article preview: The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is consulting on creating a new category of investment fund designed to allow investors to invest efficiently in long-term, illiquid assets. These new long-term asset funds (LTAF) would allow investors to invest more confidently in less liquid assets. LTAFs would be open-ended, much like existing unit trusts and OEICs. They would allow investment in venture capital, private equity, private debt, real estate and infrastructure; asset classes often called ‘productive finance’.
