European Investment Bank Funding for SME Loans
Through an agreement with the European Investment Bank (EIB; www.eib.org) we are supporting small and medium sized businesses (SMEs) and enterprises having less than 3 000 employees (MidCaps) by providing access to an invaluable source of lower cost finance and flexible repayment schedules.
A European Cooperation for the benefit of SMEs
The EIB is the long-term lending bank of the European Union; its role is to finance investment projects in support of EU policy objectives. With a view to supporting EU external action, by decision of the European Parliament and of the Council, the EIB is granted an External Mandate to finance corresponding projects outside the EU.
Thanks to its best possible rating on the capital markets (AAA), the EIB can borrow funds on favourable terms, which it passes on to SMEs and MidCaps through us. The SMEs and MidCaps are specifically and individually informed by us of the EIB’s involvement and its impact on the financial terms of the loan received. Extensive information related to the EIB Group support to SMEs and MidCaps can be found on the EIB website (www.eib.org).
