Long financing terms that match the economic life of each project – typically up to 10 years for bullet loans, or the equivalent for amortising loans. For project finance, we can also manage maturities in excess of 30 years.
Loans can be secured or unsecured and provide different levels of subordination.
The EIB also offers expertise in the financial and technical aspects of preparing a project.
