AltFG - new financing opportunities for SME


With 1st of September 2015, a new law entered in force: "Alternative Financing Law" (=AltFG).

Goals of this law are following:

  • Providing a clear legal framework for crowd financing for enhanced benefits
  • Ensuring an adequate level of investor protection in connection with financing
  • Preventing abuse of crowd funding for criminal purposes
  • Enabling cost-effective crowd financing within the meaning of the Government Programme


By increasing the prospectus requirement threshold of the Capital Markets Act (KMG) from € 250K up to € 1.5 million for emissions covered by the AltFG, it makes it a very new and attractive tool for small & medium sized companies (=SME). Together with our partner CONDA we are able to cover those law requirements easily for our clients. Furthermore, high cost and liability risks are avoided.
