How We Manage Risk

IFC has a thorough approach to risk management in emerging markets, which includes:


  • Rigorous and conservative capital adequacy, using more demanding standards than are required to maintain a triple-A credit rating.
  • Conservative portfolio diversification guidelines by company, sector, and region.
  • Credit risk assessments and integrity due diligence for all investments.
  • Highest social, environmental, and corporate governance standards.


Investors who partner with IFC benefit from IFC’s experience managing risk in emerging markets.
