Welcome to fi-compass

fi-compass is a platform for advisory services on financial instruments under the European Structural and Investment funds (ESIF).

fi-compass is provided by the European Commission in partnership with the European Investment Bank.

fi-compass is designed to support ESIF managing authorities.

The fi-compass website will progressively become the knowledge hub for ESIF Financial Instruments.

ESIF Financial Instruments

Financial instruments co-funded by the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF) are an efficient way to invest in the growth and development of people and businesses across the EU. They can be set-up by Member States and regions to invest available ESIF funding through financial products such as loans, guarantees, equity and other risk-bearing mechanisms that support projects on the ground.

ESIF

fi-compass offers general information, practical tools and learning opportunities that guide you – step-by-step - through the entire life cycle of ESIF financial instruments. Specific advice is offered also on the use of financial instruments under the ERDF, the CF, the ESF, the EAFRD and the EMFF.

So if you are a managing authority, a financial intermediary or any other party interested in learning more about the features, design and set-up of financial instruments under the Funds, follow the ESIF theme.

MRA

fi-compass multi-region assistance (MRA) will provide EU funding to co-operation projects of at least two managing authorities from different EU Member States which aim at assessing the possible use of ESIF financial instruments in specific thematic areas of common interest.

So if you are a managing authority or a financial institution interested in participating in multi-region co-operation projects, or if you want to learn from their outcomes, visit the MRA section.
