The EFSE invests in one of the world's growing emerging markets, the Southeast Europe and the European Eastern Neighbourhood regions. Currently operating in 16 countries, the EFSE may expand into additional countries as donor or grant funds become available.
The EFSE coordinates local activities via regional offices of its Fund Advisor, Finance in Motion GmbH. The Finance in Motion offices are staffed by locally recruited professionals who liaise with partner lending institutions and local stakeholders. Moreover, the local presence ensures that the EFSE is always up-to-date on changes in regulatory policies, lending practices, macro trends, governance, and general information affecting market sectors.
