EIF Working Paper 2019/058: The EIF SME Access to Finance Index June 2019 update

    Release date: 15 July 2019

This working paper elaborates on the most recent update of the EIF SME Access to Finance (ESAF) Index, a composite indicator used to monitor SME external financing markets in the 28 EU countries. The current update, using the latest available data, constitutes the sixth iteration of this exercise. The paper is used to provide some background information underlying the aggregate ESAF results by analysing its four subindices and their subindicators and focussing on a select number of individual results.
