Proposed equity investment in the Kosovo Reconstruction Equity Fund, a financial vehicle created to make equity investments in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Kosovo.

The Fund is therefore playing a critical role in supporting the recovery of the Kosovar economy.

It is managed by a consortium led by Economisti Associati, a fund manager selected through a competitive tender. KREF was established in 2000 by the EBRD through a contribution from the Italian Government of €4 million.
€2 million equity investment.
The Fund will follow the EBRD's Environmental Procedures for Investment Funds.
