European Investment Bank

The EIB is the European Union’s bank. We are the only bank owned by and representing the interests of the European Union Member States. We work closely with other EU institutions to implement EU policy.


As the largest multilateral borrower and lender by volume, we provide finance and expertise for sound and sustainable investment projects which contribute to furthering EU policy objectives. More than 90% of our activity is focused on Europe but we also implement the financial aspects of the EU’s external and development policies. Lending is by far our principal activity, accounting for around 90% of our total financial commitment. We lend to clients of all sizes to support sustainable growth and jobs. Our support is often central to attracting other investors. As well, we have a variety of sophisticated tools to help clients blend our financing with additional sources of investment. We also offer advice to help maximize value for money.
