About this report

The EBRD’s Annual Report 2013 provides a comprehensive overview of our activities and achievements in the countries where we invest.

The report demonstrates that, amid economic turbulence and the deterioration of economies, the EBRD remains a strong, resilient and trusted partner.

It describes the transition impact of the Bank’s investments, projects and policy work, highlights its innovation in key sectors and geographical initiatives, and shows how the EBRD continues to promote sustainable growth and recovery.

Who we are

The EBRD is investing in changing people’s lives and environments across a region that stretches from central Europe to Central Asia, the Western Balkans and the southern and eastern Mediterranean.

Working together with the private sector, we invest in projects, engage in policy dialogue and provide technical advice that fosters innovation and builds sustainable and open-market economies.

What we do

We provide funds for well-structured, financially robust projects of all sizes (including many small businesses), both directly and through financial intermediaries such as local banks and investment funds. The Bank works mainly with private sector clients, but also finances municipal entities and publicly owned companies.

Our principal financing instruments are loans, equity investments and guarantees. We maintain close policy dialogue with governments, authorities, international financial institutions, and representatives of civil society, and provide targeted technical assistance using funds donated by member governments and institutions.
