EU investment plan - 20.01.2015

Launch of Fi-Compass, a new advisory service dedicated to the Structural and Investment Funds
On the face of it, the €315 billion Investment Plan to get Europe growing again should make a material difference. But how can we make sure that these existing resources are optimally used in the economy?

To answer this question, the European Commission and the European Investment Bank is launching fi-compass, a new advisory service on financial instruments for the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF). With this advisory platform, public and private investors should be better equipped to work with financial instruments. They will get access to clear information, advice and technical support. The platform will provide learning tools on financial instruments, including "how-to" manuals, factsheets for quick reference, e-learning modules, face-to-face training seminars and networking events.

What are ESIF Financial Instruments?

Financial Instruments transform EU resources under the European Structural and Investment Funds into financial products such as loans, guarantees, equity and other risk-bearing mechanisms. These are then used to support economically viable projects which promote EU policy objectives.
