We can give additional support for priority projects using certain instruments with a higher risk profile than we normally accept. These priority areas include trans-European transport and energy networks and other infrastructure, the knowledge economy, energy and SMEs.

This support is provided by our Structured Finance Facility (SFF) using a mix of the following instruments:

  • senior loans and guarantees incorporating pre-completion and early operational risk
  • subordinated loans and guarantees ranking ahead of shareholder subordinated debt
  • mezzanine finance, including high-yield debt for SMEs experiencing high-growth or are undergoing restructuring
  • project-related derivatives

Such has been the success of the SFF that its scope was doubled recently to enable us to generate operations up to a maximum of EUR 3.75bn.
