The European Investment Banks finance projects in 150 countries: pre-accession countries of South-East Europe, Mediterranean partner countries; the African, Caribbean and the Pacific countries, Asia, Latin America, Central Asia, Russia, and other neighbours to the East

The majority shareholder of the European Investment Fund is the European Investment Bank, with which it forms the 'EIB Group'. The European Investment Fund provides venture capital for Small and Medium Enterprises. It also provides guarantees to the financial institutions (banks) to cover their loans to Small and Medium Enterprises.
