EU Financial Instruments: Equity, Quasi-Equity, Loans and Guarantees

Two-day workshop on financial instruments focusing on equity, quasi equity, convertible loans and guarantees.



Whereas many public bodies have used loans and guarantees in the past, the current engagement with the private sector requires new ways of financing and the EU monies are subsequently used to provide support for innovative investments by way of loans, guarantees, or equity. Many Managing Authorities have finished their ex-ante assessments and decided to introduce equity instruments or broaden their use.



You will be actively involved in the training. The sessions will combine presentations, case studies and discussion on practical problems. You will have ample opportunities to present your own problematic issues and discuss them with the speakers and participants from other Member States.

Do you want to ensure, that our experts cover the topics most interesting for you? Just send us your cases and questions in advance. We will forward them to our speakers who will include your issues the programme and answer them during the training.

All information concerning your problems and cases will be treated confidentially.
