Equity and Debt Funds


IFC promotes foreign portfolio investment in developing countries by establishing and investing in a wide range of funds, such as private equity funds and debt funds that invest in emerging-market securities. By pioneering and promoting such funds for developing countries, IFC has introduced many international portfolio investors to emerging markets.

Through IFC's mobilization efforts, both large and small companies in the developing world gain access to longer-term finance, many for the first time. Accessing financing from international markets helps them enhance their competitiveness in more open economies around the world.


IFC's investment operations are managed by
regional departments and sector/industry departments.
