    Promoter – Financial Intermediary

    SVENSK EXPORTKREDIT AB

    Location

    Description

    Operation under the European Guarantee Fund (EGF) to support Swedish mid-caps and large corporates in sectors that are in line with the EIB's long-term mission (innovation, environment and indirect support for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)) affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, SEK will build a complementary portfolio, matching the size of the EGF guarantee, to improve the access to finance for SMEs and mid-caps.

    Additionality and Impact

    The linked risk-sharing instrument under the Pan-European Guarantee Fund (EGF) is designed to address liquidity and long-term investment needs of mid-caps and large corporates affected by the COVID19 pandemic. The project will be implemented by SEK, a Swedish National Promotional Bank, which has in-depth knowledge in supporting export companies. The EIB's contribution to the project is notable. First of all, the financing type is innovative as the linked risk-sharing instrument does not yet exist on the target market for mid-caps and large corporates. EIB participation sends a signal to the market that might help crowd in private sector financial intermediaries trough supporting economically viable companies which suffer temporarily by the Covid-19 pandemic. Overall, the project can positively stimulate economic recovery, thereby sustaining employment.
