Financial Institutions & SME

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and small mid-caps are an integral part of the economy in the Nordic–Baltic countries. Therefore, we have a specific focus on supporting the development of small businesses in the Bank’s member countries. In order to reach out to SMEs and small mid-caps, NIB concludes loan programmes for onlending through financial institutions, such as commercial banks, leasing companies and other financial organisations. We can also engage in risk-sharing facilities with local financial institutions.

Financial intermediaries & SMEs

Through financial intermediaries, NIB normally finances small and medium-sized enterprises and small midcaps in the member countries. Loans from NIB can be used to finance both working capital with tenors of at least one year, and tangible capital. NIB can also finance small-scale environmental and energy efficiency projects through financial intermediaries. These projects should directly or indirectly result in decreased emissions of greenhouse gases or reduced discharges of nutrients into the Baltic Sea or of harmful substances into any waterway in the member countries.

In non-member countries, we offer project-specific programmes or general onlending programmes with selected financial institutions or governments to finance investments that involve a member country interest and that meet the Bank’s criteria for productivity gains of member country companies. In addition, projects may, if applicable, also be required to meet NIB’s environmental criteria for climate change mitigation.

The potential impact of projects will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. The focus may be, for example, on identifying and financing projects that benefit from expertise and technologies from NIB’s member countries.
