Hundreds of thousands of companies are struggling in Europe. Financing approved under the European Guarantee Fund will mobilise billions of euros to get businesses back on track.

The EGF provides guarantees to free up capital for national promotional banks, local banks and other financial intermediaries in order to make more financing available for small and medium companies, mid-caps and corporates. 

Participating countries in the European Union provide guarantees proportional to their share in the EIB or other institutions. The EGF Contributors’ Committee, made up from representatives of these countries, decides on the availability of guarantees.

The guarantees will cover losses that may occur in the EGF operations of the EIB Group - including the EIB and its specialised SME-financing arm, the European Investment Fund.

 

  • Companies can seek financing from the Guarantee Fund directly with a local bank or other participating financial institutions in their countries.
  • Public sector authorities or health organisations such as hospitals, as well as larger, innovative companies, can request EIB loans for individual projects or research.
