What We Do

Our Products and Services

IFC provides investment, advice, and asset management — offerings that are mutually reinforcing and can be tailored to a client’s specific needs.

Our financial products enable companies to manage risk and broaden their access to foreign and domestic capital markets. Investment services product lines include loans, equity investments, trade and commodity finance, derivatives and structured finance and blended finance.

We also play a catalytic role in mobilizing additional funding through parallel loans, loan participations, partial credit guarantees, securitizations, loan sales, risk sharing facilities and fund investments. By attracting new investors, we introduce our clients to new sources of capital and better ways of doing business.

In fiscal year 2023, IFC committed a record $43.7 billion to private companies and financial institutions in developing countries, leveraging the power of the private sector to improve people’s lives as economies grapple with the impacts of global compounding crises.
