European Investment Bank
European Investment Bank
  • The task of the European Investment Bank, the
    European Union's financing institution, is to
    contribute towards the integration, balanced
    development and economic and social cohesion of
    the Member Countries.
  • The European Investment Bank (EIB), the
    financing institution of the European Union, was
    created by the Treaty of Rome.
  • The members of the EIB are the Member States of
    the European Union, who have all subscribed to
    the Bank's capital.
  • The EIB grants loans mainly from the proceeds of
    its borrowings, which, together with "own funds"
    (paid-in capital and reserves), constitute its
    "own resources".
  • Outside the European Union, EIB financing
    operations are conducted principally from the
    Bank's own resources but also, under mandate,
    from Union or Member States' budgetary resources.

European Investment Bank
  • Objectives and financing priorities
  • Economic and social cohesion in the enlarged EU
  • Implementation of the Innovation 2010 Initiative
  • Development of Trans-European and Access
  • Support of EU development and cooperation
    policies in partner countries
  • Environmental protection and improvement,
    including climate change and renewable energy.
  • Support for small and medium-sized enterprises
    as well as mid-cap companies of intermediate size
  • Support for human capital, notably health.

European Investment Bank Shareholders
  • The shareholders of the European Investment Bank
    are the 25 Member States of the European Union.
  • Each Member States share in the Banks capital
    is calculated in accordance with its economic
    weight within the European Union (expressed in
    GDP) at the time of its accession.
  • In total, the Banks subscribed capital amounts
    to more than 163.6 billion.
  • The EU Member States are fully eligible for Bank
    financing operations, without any geographical or
    sectorial quotas being applied.
  • Under its Statute, the Bank may have maximum
    loans outstanding equivalent to two and half
    times its capital.

European Investment Bank - Structure
  • Board of Governors consists of Ministers
    designated by each of the 25 Member States,
    usually Finance Ministers.
  • Board of Directors has the power to take
    decisions in respect of loans, guarantees and
    borrowings. The Board of Directors consists of 26
    Directors, with one Director nominated by each
    Member State and one by the European Commission.
  • The Management Committee is the Banks permanent
    collegiate executive body. It has nine members.
    Under the authority of the President and the
    supervision of the Board of Directors, it
    oversees day-to-day running of the EIB, prepares
    decisions for Directors and ensures that these
    are implemented.
  • The Audit Committee is an independent body
    answerable directly to the Board of Governors and
    responsible for verifying that the operations of
    the Bank have been conducted and its books kept
    in a proper manner.

European Investment Fund
  • Following the conclusions of the Lisbon European
    Council in March 2000, which called for increased
    support for operations to assist SMEs, the Board
    of Governors decided to set up the "EIB Group",
    consisting of the European Investment Bank and
    the European Investment Fund.
  • The EIB became the majority shareholder in the
    European Investment Fund, which nevertheless
    retains a tripartite share-ownership structure
    consisting of the EIB (59.15), the European
    Commission (30) and European banks and financial
    institutions (10.85).
  • EIB Group is thus able to play a predominant
    role in boosting the competitiveness of European
    industry through the diversified support it
    provides for the activities of SMEs (medium and
    long-term loans, venture capital and guarantees).
  • The EIB continues to promote smaller businesses
    through its medium and long-term global loan
    financing, arranged in collaboration with the
    banking sector.
  • The relationship between the EIB and the EIF
    encourages a productive sharing of expertise
    between the Bank and the Fund in support of
    finance for SMEs

Financing Facilities offered by EIB
  • The EIB offers various financial services to
    support projects, depending on eligibility and
    project category.
  • Loans for SMEs through an intermediary (credit
    lines made available to banks, leasing companies
    or financial institutions, which on lend the
    proceeds for small or medium-scale investment
    projects meeting the Bank's criteria)
  • Venture capital
  • Direct loans (also known as Individual loans)
    (Promoters in both the public and private
    sectors, including banks)
  • Structured Finance Facility (SFF) (senior loans
    and guarantees incorporating pre-completion and
    early operational risk subordinated loans and
    guarantees ranking ahead of shareholder
    subordinated debt mezzanine finance, including
    high-yield debt for industrial companies in
    transition from SME scale or in the course of
    restructuring project-related derivatives.)

World Bank Group Organization
  • The World Bank is like a cooperative, where its
    184 member countries are shareholders.
  • The shareholders are represented by a Board of
    Governors, who are the ultimate policy makers at
    the World Bank. Generally, the governors are
    member countries' ministers of finance or
    ministers of development. They meet once a year
    at the Annual Meetings of the Boards of Governors
    of the World Bank Group and the International
    Monetary Fund.
  • Because the governors only meet annually, they
    delegate specific duties to 24 Executive
    Directors, who work on-site at the bank. The five
    largest shareholders, France, Germany, Japan, the
    United Kingdom and the United States appoint an
    executive director, while other member countries
    are represented by 19 executive directors.
  • The World Bank operates day-to-day under the
    leadership and direction of the president,
    management and senior staff, and the vice
    presidents in charge of regions, sectors,
    networks and functions. Vice Presidents are the
    principal managers at the World Bank.

    agriculture sector redevelops in the coming years.
