As new challenges arise for the EU budget, the next Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) must maintain strong investment policies in the area of European economic and territorial development, by making the most of available resources. In this context, innovative financial instruments, as well as blending mechanisms may be part of the solution. Thanks to their financial expertise and their long-standing experience in supporting development policies, National Promotional Banks and Institutions (NPBIs) are natural partners of the EU institutions, public authorities and local project promotors in implementing such tools when appropriate and in designing an efficient and comprehensive post-2020 MFF. This workshop will focus on providing feedback on the management by NPBIs of financial instruments coming from structural funds, and discuss the possibilities offered by financial instruments and platforms to maximise the impact of both structural and centralised funds. Panellists will also provide concrete examples of local investments coordinated by NPBIs with public and private funds at EU, national or infra-national level. ELTI members represent a European-wide network of 27 responsible long-term investors, representing a combined balance sheet of Euros 1.7 trillion. They offer financial solutions tailored to the specific needs of their respective country and economy. Following the specific public mission of each member, the business model of each institution differs from country to country, including different products and approaches.
