European Bank for Reconstruction and Development

A bank created after the end of the Cold War to help Central and Eastern European nations in the transition to capitalism. Among other things, it provides loans to companies and governments for new and expanded operations, assists in privatization of former state-owned businesses, and helps with bank stabilization. In 2006, it began changing its focus from helping former Soviet bloc nations in Europe to former members of the Soviet Union in Central Asia, including Russia itself. It is financed by member nations across the world, including most Western European countries and the United States.
