Our impact in 2019 and beyond

Since its establishment in 1958 the EU bank has invested over a trillion euros.


Boosting GDP and jobs

The EIB Group’s investments in 2018 will have a considerable impact on Europe’s economy, adding 1 million jobs by 2022.




How we have grown

Our HQ: Founded in Brussels in 1958 as the Treaty of Rome comes into force, we moved to Luxembourg in 1968. We relocated to our current site in 1980 with a major new building extension completed in 2008.

Lending: From ECU 10bn in 1988, our annual lending neared €45bn in the mid-2000s before jumping to €79bn in 2009 as a temporary response to the crisis. It was €63.3bn in 2019.

Capital: From less than ECU 30bn in the early 1990s, our capital-base rose to €243bn on 1st February 2020. 

Partner countries: We made our first agreements with non-Member States and non-European countries in the early 1960s. Now we work with over 135 non-EU states which receive around 10% of our funding.

European Investment Fund: The EIF was founded in 1994 to specialise in SME and venture capital investment. The EIB is the majority shareholder supported by the European Commission and private banks.

Our people: From a workforce of 66 in 1958, we passed 1 000 staff members in 1999, and the total is now over 3 450. Most work in Luxembourg, but we also have external offices, in the European Union and across the regions in which we are active around the world.
