JESSICA Initiative

Funds advised: €50m

Background: JESSICA stands for Joint European Support for Sustainable Investment in City Areas. This initiative was developed by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank (EIB), in collaboration with the Council of Europe Development Bank.

The starting point of JESSICA’s implementation in Greece was the signature of the Funding Agreement between the Hellenic Republic and European Investment Bank (EIB) in July 2010, for the establishment of the JESSICA Holding Fund Greece as a separate block of Finance within EIB.

Structure: In March 2011, the competent Managing Authority (Special Coordination Unit of NSRF Operational Programs, Greek Ministry for Development & Competitiveness) in cooperation with the EIB proceeded with a Call for Expression of Interest (EoI) for the selection of Urban Development Funds (UDF’s) to act as financial intermediaries that would constitute the core function of JESSICA’s implementation in Greece.

HCP was selected by EIB, alongside Investment Bank of Greece under the context of the JESSICA Initiative, to actively advise the latter on the management of 4 UDFs, to invest in urban development projects in the regions of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace, North Aegean, Western Macedonia and Epirus.

Strategy/Sector: Allocated funds could be invested in urban development projects such as: urban infrastructure, including transport, water/waste water, renewable energy, energy efficiency improvements, real estate development (office buildings, shopping malls etc.) redevelopment of brownfield sites, as well as site clearance and decontamination, health and tourism. The investment in each urban project could be implemented through equity and/or debt with attractive terms and conditions to the investee.
