European Fund for Strategic Investments: How to ensure sustainability, good governance and added-value
Briefing | 31 January 2016
The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) aims to leverage through the European Investment Bank (EIB) financing for a total of EUR 315 billion in new projects by 2018. The guarantee fund should target projects with a higher risk profile than normal EIB investments and should as well increase lending for investments which significantly contribute to achieving European common policy objectives (“European added-value”). This briefing outlines necessary improvements in the EFSI implementation to realise these aims.
