The first platform in Europe approved by the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) to facilitate access to the credit market for Italian SMEs.
The Efsi Platform (Thematic Investment Platform for Italian SMEs) is the new initiative from Cdp and the European Investment Fund (EIF), aiming to make it easier for Italian small- and medium-sized enterprises to access credit by bringing together Cdp resources and national and European funds.
As Italy’s National Promotional Institution, Cdp is the country’s principal manager of Juncker Plan funds and is creating investment platforms to ensure optimal collaboration with the European Investment Bank. The platforms are flexible tools that make it possible to identify economically sustainable projects and attract potential investors, catalysing private resources in addition to public, Eu and Italian funds made available by the Eib Group, the National Promotional Institutions (NPIs) and the member states of the Eu.
Among NPIs, Cdp has created the highest number of platforms in Europe. The new initiative in collaboration with the Eif is an agreement under the framework of the Juncker Plan’s Sme framework, with the aim of promoting the growth of Italian SMEs through easier access to the credit market.
The Efsi platform helps with the implementation of risk-sharing initiatives capable of triggering investments by SMEs worth over 6 billion euros, against a total allocation of 225 million euros made available by the Eif, Cdp and the Ministry for the Economy and Finance.
The initiative will enable Cdp to provide financing for guarantees on new debt portfolio operations (loans or guarantees) originated by financial institutions for SMEs, up to a value of 3.125 million euros.
