How to Apply Full Potential of Financial Instruments in ESIF

The revolving character of Financial Instruments (FIs), the new ESF+ along with the current engagement with the private sector require new ways of financing by way of equity, quasi-equity, convertible loans, guarantees or other risk-sharing mechanisms. Hence, Financial Intermediaries and Managing Authorities who have already performed their ex-ante assessment need to be aware of the regulation and procedures applicable to credits, guarantees and equity.

How to Combine Funds Effectively

Learn how to tackle implementation challenges of innovative Financial Instruments and what to expect post 2020 from various European institutions, national managing authorities as well as financial intermediaries and holding funds. Take the opportunity to get first-hand insight into combining funds effectively to the next steps of equity or quasi-equity financial instruments compliant with national and EU laws and audit procedures for this and the next funding period.
