EIF Research & Market Analysis (RMA) has the pleasure to present "The role of cooperative banks and smaller institutions for the financing of SMEs and small midcaps in Europe, July/2016”, n.36 of EIF's Working Paper Series.
The EIB Group Risk Enhancement Mandate (EREM) is a mandate from EIB to EIF which aims at enhancing EIF’s risk capacity with a view to increasing access to finance for SMEs and small mid-caps in Europe through financial intermediaries. The working paper provides a market analysis of small financial intermediaries, such as smaller banks with a local/regional focus, small cooperative banks, or small non-bank financial institutions, which play an important role for SMEs’ access to finance in Europe. The assessment is to be seen in the context of a new product offer under EREM, “Cooperative Banks & Smaller Institutions” (CBSI), which is also explained in the working paper.
