23 September 2020 - This publication offers guidance to policy makers in Southeast Asia to enable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs to access a broad range of financial instruments. It provides an overview of eight alternative financing instruments beyond traditional bank lending, namely: leasing, factoring, private equity, venture capital and business angel financing, specialised SME exchanges, debt crowdfunding/P2P lending, equity crowdfunding, blockchain-based financing, and trade finance.

 

This report is part of the five-year Canada-OECD Project for ASEAN SMEs (COPAS), which supports the implementation of the ASEAN Strategic Action Plan for SME Development. The work was made possible thanks to financial support provided by the Government of Canada.
