Promoter – Financial Intermediary
INSTITUTO DE CREDITO OFICIAL
Funded or unfunded linked risk-sharing transaction with full delegation to Instituto de Credito Oficial (ICO) and/or financial intermediaries to support eligible mid-caps under the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).
The operation consists of an Investment Platform (IP) developed in cooperation with ICO to promote, over a period of three years, investments carried out by Spanish SMEs and mid-caps. EIB and ICO will sign an IP agreement that will detail the institutions' cooperation and will include: (i) a risk sharing window for larger SME and mid-cap projects; EIB will provide credit risk protection on a loan-by-loan basis to guarantee an underlying mid-cap portfolio originated by ICO (and possibly eligible financial intermediaries); (ii) an intermediated window for smaller SME and mid-cap projects; ICO will finance projects with access to EIB funding.
