Financial instruments co‑funded by ESIF

By Pavlina Dravecka / Updated: 29 Oct 2015

Financial instruments (FIs) co‑funded by the European Structural Investment Funds (ESIF) are a sustainable and efficient way to invest in growth and development in EU regions and cities. They can support a broad range of development objectives to the benefit of a wide range of final recipients (FRs) with the potential for EU funds to lever in additional public and private contributions and/or to be reused for further investments.

FI-compass is a unique platform for advisory services on financial instruments under the European Structural and Investment funds (ESIF) and microfinance under the Programme for Employment and Social Innovation (EaSI). FI-compass is provided by the European Commission in partnership with the European Investment Bank. FI-compass is designed to support ESIF managing authorities, EaSI microfinance providers and other interested parties, by providing practical know-how and learning tools on financial instruments. These will include “how-to” manuals, factsheets for quick reference, e-learning modules, face-to-face training seminars and networking events. The FI-compass website will progressively become the knowledge hub for ESIF Financial Instruments. For more information check the FI-compass website.

FI-compass is provided by the European Commission in partnership with the European Investment Bank. FI-compass is designed to support ESIF managing authorities, EaSI microfinance providers and other interested parties, by providing practical know-how and learning tools on financial instruments - but the question we all have is whether they relate to the SUMP approach? Please can we have a valid link to find out more?

Hi Colin, the link is http://www.fi-compass.eu. The answer to your question is: normally yes i.e. Fi-Compass should be aware of the EC's support to the SUMP approach. JASPERS for example is very much aware and supportive of that approach, all other EU advisory services should be as well. Best regards, Isabelle
