EDFI Network

The European Development Financial Institutions (EDFI) was created in 1992 in Brussels and it is composed by fifteen bilateral institutions that have the mission to finance, from medium to long term investments promoted by private companies in emerging and developing economies.

EDFI’s are state owned entities, although some might have as stockholders business associations and/or private entities with government guarantee. This structure gives them greater strength and credibility, allowing to offer financing with more competitive conditions and/or complementary to commercial banking offers.

EDFI’s can act alone or in co-financing with other counterparts, enabling a risk and experience sharing, giving larger credibility and leveraging additional resources to a project
