Digital, social and climate finance - new approach for European countries
One of the major issues of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis is the increase in financial needs reported by both businesses and the general public across the European Union. Traditional sources of public and banking funding are becoming increasingly insufficient; hence, there is a need to develop alternative forms of finance, such as digital finance, social finance, green and climate finance. The development of fund-raising instruments is supported by the increased use of online platforms (crowdfunding platforms, peer-to-peer lending, equity platforms, etc.) as well as the emerging new business models in FinTech. There is also an increasing involvement of financial institutions (including banks) related to providing support to alternative forms of funding reflecting the strategically important direction of development in the post-pandemic period. The approach of national authorities, regulators and supervisors is also changing in this respect, with initiatives such as EUROPE 2020, the European Green Deal, the Digital Finance Strategy.
The theme of this special issue gravitates around the various types of financial alternatives and is aligned to current regulatory initiatives at European level, aiming at providing timely and novel research insights on topical issues which are highly placed on the European public agenda.
The special issue therefore covers areas such as:
- digital finance (platform finance, cryptocurrencies)
- social finance (social investment)
- climate finance
