AOFM keeps ABSF on hold

The Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM) revealed on 8 July that the pause on inviting investment proposals for its Australian Business Securitisation Fund (ABSF) will remain in place for the time being. It says the fund was designed “as primarily an exercise in market development” but the process of achieving this development is on hiatus and therefore the AOFM will not progress with further ABSF investments.
