Sierra Leone officially launched a collateral registry for movable assets on June 12, 2017. The collateral registry will improve access to finance for micro, small and medium enterprises in Sierra Leone. An initiative of the Bank of Sierra Leone, the collateral registry was developed with the support of the World Bank Group and the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID). NatLaw's Dr. Marek Dubovec advised the Bank of Sierra Leone in the design and implementation of the collateral registry, as well as in the drafting of the collateral registry regulations.
