La Financière Région Réunion

    Date: 20 September 2017 - 31 December 2017

 La Financière Région Réunion

La Financière Région Réunion is a new generation of Fund-of-Funds (FoF). This FoF was set up in cooperation with the French Region Réunion using resources from the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), the Region and the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF).

La Financière Région Réunion is managed by the European Investment Fund (EIF) under the current ESIF programming period 2014-2020. It builds on the close and active collaboration between EIB Group and the Region for many years.

The main purpose of the FoF will be used to enhance small and medium-sized enterprises’ (SMEs) competitiveness by easing their access to finance (debt and equity) with the objective to support approximately 1 000 SMEs for a total investment of EUR 100 million.

  • An equity co-investment instrument, aiming at strengthening SME equity in the French Region Réunion
