It is worth mentioning that all five SIF’s recorded a double-digit share price increase in November, with SIF Transilvania leading the list (+18.8%). Such a share price reaction came after the Romanian Government eliminated 5% ownership threshold in the SIFs.
As a reminder, The Chamber of Deputies, the decision-making chamber, adopted the law on alternative investment funds (AIF), which repeals the normative act by which investors are capped by a 5% ownership threshold in all 5 listed SIFs. After the mentioned vote, the law goes for promulgation to the president, and the legislator gives a period of 6 months to Fondul Proprietatea and SIFs to submit the documentation related to the qualification under one of the categories of alternative investment funds. Therefore, the mentioned act should take place in 2020. To read our blog on the mentioned topic click here.
