EIF has the status of a Multilateral Development Bank which allows financial institutions to apply a 20% risk weighting under Basel 1 and a 0% risk weighting under Basel 2 to assets guaranteed by EIF (according to the EU Capital Requirements Directive).

EIF also benefits from AAA-ratings, which is annually assessed by Fitch, Moody's and Standard & Poor's.

The key drivers for the outlook result from:

  • Multilateral development bank status
  • Highly credit-rated shareholders
  • Ample liquidity and strong capitalisation
  • Debt-free balance sheet
  • Sound risk management and monitoring
  • Strong governance and highly qualified staff

For details, refer to the 2023 credit ratings reports:

Note: Following the recent withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, we are updating the relevant EIF.org pages.
