The facility comprises a € 100 million global loan (funding) window... -sharing product that can be applied in other technology sectors and/or geographical areas. Background : The EIB has established a Structured Finance Facility (SFF) in order to match the types... of the SFF is to furnish value added for priority projects by complementing the commercial banks and capital markets. These operations will be undertaken chiefly in the countries of the European Union
of short sea shipping. This is the first EIB loan granted under its Structured Finance Facility (SFF) in Estonia, and allows for risk-sharing as part of a syndicate of banks arranged by HSH Nordbank... Finance Facility (SFF) designed to match the types of funding to the requirements of projects with a high-risk profile and to pursue its equity financing and guarantee operations in favour of large-scale infrastructure schemes. In order to support the development of the Bank’s activities under the SFF programme, in 2006 the EIB’s Board of Governors decided to consider a gradual increase of the SFF
(SFF) from the current EUR 750 m (approved in 2001) to EUR 1 250 m, to be financed from the Bank's surplus. The Board also decided on an overall ceiling for future SFF capital allocations of EUR 3 750 m. The SFF allows the Bank to finance projects with a higher degree of risk, especially in two areas: research and innovation projects, with SFF funds being allocated to the Risk Sharing Finance Facility, the joint finance instrument developed by the EIB and the Commission and funded at least 50% by the EU budget;
Trans-European Networks, with SFF funds being allocated to the Guarantee for TENs
financing in various countries providing loans exceeding EUR 20 billion in this regard. This A4 Motorway PPP is being implemented in the framework of the EIB’s Structured Finance Facility (“SFF”). The SFF
projects was 31%.
Other instruments include the Struc-
tured Finance Facility (SFF) for TENs, which
allows lending to projects of sub-invest-
ment-grade credit quality, and the Loan
Guarantee Instrument for Trans-European
Transport Network projects (LGTT), which
is designed to facilitate greater participa-

Increase of the SFF
Innovation, quality and increased value added were the focus of the new
strategic orientations endorsed by the Board of Governors in 2005. In line
with this strategy, there has since been a strong emphasis on financing
projects under the Structured Finance Facility (SFF), which allows the Bank
to finance projects with a higher degree of risk. To keep the momentum go-
ing, the Governors decided to make additional SFF resources available.
