EIF promotes regional development and EU cohesion policy through :
JEREMIE is a joint initiative developed by the European Commission in co-operation with the European Investment Bank Group and other financial institutions in the framework of the 2007-2013 programming period. JEREMIE offered EU Member States, through their national or regional Managing Authorities, the opportunity to use part of their EU Structural Funds to finance SMEs in a more efficient and sustainable way.
EIF’s expertise in partnering with national institutions is firmly established and forms a central part of its strategic development and regional business focus. EIF is advising, sponsoring or managing a number of equity Funds-of-Funds and guarantee / debt funds on behalf of third party investors, including national and regional governments as well as private strategic investors. The objective is to support EU policy objectives and provide a wide choice of financial solutions tailored to complement existing national schemes to support SMEs.
