What We Do

What We Do > Advisory Services 

IFC Advisory Services

Our experience shows that companies need more than financial investment to thrive. To help the private sector in emerging markets, IFC provides advice, problem solving, and training to companies, industries, and governments.


Our work includes advising national and local governments on how to improve their investment climate and strengthen basic infrastructure. We offer advice through nearly 1,100 Advisory Services staff in 85 offices across 73 countries. In FY11 Advisory Services project expenditures total $206.7 million. In all, about two-thirds of project expenditures went to IDA countries.
