Creating opportunities for people to escape from poverty requires partnerships and collaboration. In recent years, IFC has cemented its partnerships with Development Finance Institutions (DFIs), International Financial Institutions (IFIs), and Export-Credit Agencies (ECAs).
These partnerships include:
Syndications: through Parallel Loans, DFIs and IFIs can participate in syndicated loans with IFC. IFC uses its existing syndication platform, as well as its deal-structuring expertise and global presence to identify investments, perform due diligence and negotiate loan documents, sharing those benefits with DFIs and IFIs.
Joint Activity with IFIs: IFIs and IFC invest jointly in (or have advisory projects with) numerous clients. This requires close collaboration to increase our development impact.
Special Initiatives: IFC has also partnered with a number of DFIs/IFIs on its special initiatives.
