EIB Investment Survey - Tracking investment needs and constraints across Europe
The annual EIB Group Survey on Investment and Investment Finance (EIBIS) is an EU-wide survey that gathers qualitative and quantitative information on investment activities by small and medium-sized businesses and larger corporates, their financing requirements and the difficulties they face.
The survey covers some 12 500 firms and a wide spectrum of questions on corporate investment and investment finance. It thus provides a wealth of unique firm-level information about investment decisions and investment finance choices.
The 2017 EIB Investment Survey (EIBIS) includes an exceptional module on municipal investment, with interviews of 500 municipalities across the EU to gather information on their investment activities, needs, difficulties and financing requirements. This publication provides an overview of results for the EU, large EU countries and country groups.
