About European Investment Bank (EIB)
The EIB is the European Union's bank. We are the only bank owned by and representing the interests of the European Union Member States. We work closely with other EU institutions to implement EU policy. We are the world’s largest multilateral borrower and lender. We provide finance and expertise for sustainable investment projects that contribute to EU policy objectives. More than 90% of our activity is in Europe. But we also are a big investor around the world. How we do it Lending: The vast majority of our financing is through loans, but we also offer guarantees, microfinance, equity investment, etc. Blending: Our support unlocks financing from other sources, particularly from the EU budget. This is blended with loans to form a full financing package. Advising: Lack of finance is often only one barrier to investment. We help with administrative and project management capacity to facilitate investment. See "Products section" for our full range of products and services.
