EIB funding authorisation for 2021
The EIB acquires the funds for its lending by borrowing on the international capital markets.
The EIB’s funding is balanced to be responsive to market demand, while also developing and maintaining a strategic presence. In the context of the EIB’s alignement with the EU Taxonomy Regulation, our funding strategy relies on the issuance of large and liquid benchmark transactions in the main currencies. This is combined with targeted issuance (plain vanilla and structured), usually on the basis of diversification of currencies, maturities and structures and a strong and growing visible component of sustainable debt products.
The pursuit of liquidity, transparency and diversification of funding sources are core characteristics of the EIB’s funding strategy.
