Event description

Description

Join the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, Stakeholders and SMEs, at the launch of the Mayors innovative 'Greater London Investment Fund' (GLIF). The event is an opportunity to hear reflections from the Mayor and thoughts from our GLIF Partners and Managers.

GLIF will operate as a £100 million fund of funds and will provide loan and equity finance for London’s SMEs, through investment in three sub-funds. The funds will be managed in the case of the equity fund by MMC Ventures, and in the case of the loan fund by FSE Fund Managers.

As set out in the Mayor of London’s Economic Development Strategy, the GLIF will comprise a range of financial instruments specifically created to provide finance where there remains evidence of persistent market failure in the SME funding ecosystem. This includes the Circular Economy where investors tend to shy away given the unknown and unproven technologies and/or business models.
