EU shared management financial instruments

Financial instruments co-funded by EU shared management funds can be an efficient way to invest in growth and development across the European Union. They can be set up by Member States and regions to invest EU shared management resources through financial products such as loans, guarantees, equity and other risk-bearing mechanisms that support projects on the ground.

fi-compass offers general information, practical tools and learning opportunities that guide you step-by-step through the life cycle of EU shared management financial instruments. Specific advice is offered also on the use of financial instruments under each of the EU shared management funds.

So, if you are a managing authority, a financial intermediary or any other party interested in learning more about the practical features of EU shared management financial instruments you can find the information you are searching for here.
