Let us measure with pride the road that we have travelled, ever since we decided together to promote long-term investments for the real economy in Europe.
Over the course of more than 30 conferences, we endeavored to capture the plurality of the dimensions of long term investment and brought at the same table key actors from too often separate worlds. European Commissioners, national and local representatives, representatives of the industrial, financial, social sectors and public investors joined together to discuss the investment needed in key sectors for the future of the EU - urban development, transport and energy infrastructures, digitalisation… - and assess solutions, in particular the roll-out of the Juncker Plan.
To mark the end of this legislature and celebrate together our achievements, we are very pleased to invite you to a cocktail on :
April 2, 18 :00 – 19 :30, PHS 12th floor – Restaurant
For external participants: 17:30 – 17:50 in front of the main entrance of the European Parliament (ASP Building)
The Fund's main activity is the structuring and management of financial instruments co-financed by the European Structural and Investment Funds during the 2014-2020 programming period. Financial instruments are an alternative way of grant financing, which is gaining an increasingly important role in the European Union budget. Targeting projects that could potentially begin self-sustaining, they provide investment support through loans, guarantees or equity investments. In this way, business and public institutions are supported for economic development. Financial instruments allow for the return (recycling) of funds that can be reused.
The Fund of funds selects financial intermediaries - banks, funds, credit and other financial institutions. In turn, the elected financial managers mobilize additional private capital and significantly increase the public resource that they provide to the final recipients.
All funds provided under the aforementioned Operational Programs for Financial Instruments are united in a common Fund of funds, and the company managing it is FMFIB EAD.
