The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is an international financial institution that supports projects in 29 countries, from central Europe to central Asia. Investing primarily in private sector clients whose needs cannot be fully met by the market, the Bank promotes entrepreneurship and fosters transition towards open and democratic market economies.
WHAT WE DO:
We provide project financing for banks, industries and businesses, both new ventures and investments in existing companies. We also work with publicly owned companies.
Direct investments generally range from €5 million to €230 million. We provide loan and equity finance, guarantees, leasing facilities and trade finance. Typically we fund up to 35 per cent of the total project cost.
1. Direct financing - The principal forms of direct financing provided by the EBRD are loans, equity and guarantees.
