FINERPOL aims to increase the renovation rate of buildings by improving access to finance and so enabling those upfront investments to be made.  What is a Financial Instrument? Financial Instrument schemes with EU participation are created to provide finance on a complementary basis from the Union budget to address policy objectives of the Union. These objectives are often achieved with risky investments that require public participation to de-risk financing. This EU financial support will be combined with finance coming from the private sector and other public financial sources in order to promote investments in the area of building energy retrofitting. Such instruments may take the form loans or guarantees and other risk-sharing instruments (equities and quasi-equities), and may, where appropriate, be combined with grants. Loans Most common instrument in any financial scheme, have repayment priority over other financial structures such as equities, have low risk (but higher interest) and are easy to manage. Guarantees An investor creates a guarantee in order to de-riskfinancing (loan or other) and offer cheaper financing, they require less funding than loans alone and have a clear multiplying effect. Equities As in the creation of a Company, an investor (also public entities) may contribute to financing contributing as a partner or shareholder, having higher risks but also higher ROI. It usually targets a smaller number of recipients with high investment volume. Quasi-Equity A type of financing that ranks between debt and equity according to the exposure to loss in case of insolvency or the level of ownership acquired. It stimulates risky investment with less collateral requirements than equities. A special case is the subordinated loan: It will only be paid back once the senior loans are entirely paid.
