The overall governance and operational structure of the EIB is composed of: 


The shareholders of the EIB are the 27 Member States of the European Union.


Statutory bodies

The EIB’s statutory bodies are responsible for the strategic decisions and management of the Bank.


Control and evaluation

Controls guarantee the integrity and soundness of the Bank’s operations.


Organisation structure

Working in multidisciplinary teams, the Directorates and Departments prepare and implement the decisions of the Bank's management.
