Moody's Report on IFC - December 2014

"The International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) Aaa rating and stable outlook are underpinned by its robust capital base, abundant liquidity, diversified portfolio, tested preferred creditor status, highly rated shareholders, and high degree of shareholder commitment. These strengths are counteracted by its somewhat riskier business model, which focuses on private borrowers in high-risk markets, as well as its relatively high and rising levels non-performing loans. Additionally, unlike the majority of similarly-rated MDBs, the IFC does not benefit from contractual member support mechanisms and relies primarily on its own earnings, rather than capital infusions from members, as the main source of capital."
