ELFA announces end of affiliation with AFME

The mutual decision was taken by the two groups following the conclusion of a 6-month trial period, so that both organisations can continue serving the interests of their respective members, while still working together for the benefit of the whole market.

Sabrina Fox, Executive Advisor to ELFA, said: “ELFA is grateful to AFME for their support over the last six months. The platform they provided to us was essential to our success and momentum. As trade associations we represent different constituencies with unique perspectives. Working together as independent entities will enhance our ability to represent our respective members, and to collaborate with each other. Our intention is to continue to work closely with AFME as both parties act to support the growth and sustainability of the European leveraged finance market.”

Gary Simmons, Managing Director of AFME’s High Yield Division, said: “This was a mutual decision taken by both organisations in order for us to best represent the interests of our respective members. The high yield investor community is an important part of the European high yield industry and we value its contribution to maintaining a healthy and viable market. AFME and ELFA will continue to work informally together across various policy issues, including joint initiatives and continued communication, to promote high yield market growth and efficiency.”
