European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)

The EBRD provides project-specific direct financing for private sector activities, restructuring and privatisation, or financing of infrastructure that supports these activities.  Available to those wishing to invest in central and eastern Europe and central Asia.

Direct investments generally range from €5 million to €250 million.  Smaller projects are financed both directly by the EBRD and through financial intermediaries. 

EBRD typically funds up to 35% of the total project cost.

The Bank only invests in projects that could not otherwise attract financing on similar terms

The principal forms of direct financing that may be provided by the EBRD are loans, equity and guarantees.
