Since first being rated in 1989, IFC has been rated triple-A every year by Standard and Poor's and by Moody's. A consistent triple-A credit rating based on excellent financial performance has assisted in building significant and distinct name recognition in the market place for IFC.

IFC’s lending activities are mainly funded through a very wide range of benchmark and bespoke debt products in various currencies. Investors in IFC’s bonds are invariably supporting the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. As part of the World Bank Group, IFC has two overarching goals—ending extreme poverty by 2030 and boosting shared prosperity—that are aligned with the SDGs. Through direct investments and advisory services, IFC provides private sector solutions that lay the foundation for sustainable and inclusive economic growth.
