The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the European Union financing institution. Its shareholders are the 27 Member States of the Union, which have jointly subscribed its capital. The EIB’s role is to provide long-term finance in support of investment projects. The EIB, the largest international non-sovereign lender and borrower, raises the resources it needs to finance its lending activities by borrowing on the capital markets, mainly through public bond issues. Its AAA credit rating enables it to obtain the best terms on the market. As a not-forprofit institution, the EIB passes on this advantage in the terms it offers to the beneficiaries of its loans both in the public and private sectors. In 2010, some 88% of the total EIB financing of EUR 72 billion went to projects in the EU.
