BENEFICIAL, DIVERSIFIED SUBSIDISED LOAN INSTRUMENTS:
Thanks to FINEST’s involvement in foreign projects, firms based in North-East Italy are in a position to obtain subsidised loan instruments that are provided in order to further international dealings. These instruments include the facilitations set forth in Legge (law) 100/90 for non-EU countries, entailing partial reimbursement - in the form of a straight grant − of interest on loans provided by the Italian banking system for the purposes of share capital subscription in foreign firms. On behalf of Italy’s Ministry of Economic Development, FINEST also manages a fund for the Balkan area that facilitates investments in Albania, Macedonia, Serbia, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. It also provides access to venture capital funds for investments in other foreign countries.
