Impact investors will find in IFC a like-minded partner. Our mission is to economic development in our member countries by encouraging the growth of productive private enterprise. We are the original impact investor, and we aim to have a positive impact on people’s lives wherever we operate. 

We have always considered the social, environmental and economic impacts of our investments. Our Operating Principles for Impact Management, a set of guidelines based on how we manage and report impact, has set a common standard for other investors to adopt.

Our impact-rating system, called the Anticipated Impact Measurement and Monitoring Framework, is used to evaluate every investment we make by considering expected development outcomes, as well as effects on market creation. 

IFC welcomes established impact investors, as well as those contemplating entering the responsible investing space for the first time, to join us as syndications partners. Our products enable impact investors to expand their footprints into diverse opportunities across key economic sectors in developing countries around the world. 

Eligible partners can participate in individual investments via B Loans; other opportunities may exist to join us as parallel lenders. Investors interested in building a globally diversified senior loan portfolio with IFC may also consider joining our Managed Co-Lending Portfolio Program.
