Impact Notes are IFC’s bonds targeting primarily retail investors in the US and are available through an extensive nationwide network of over 500 broker-dealers, institutions, asset managers, RIAs and banks via the InspereX platform. They are issued off IFC’s GMTN Program, as supplemented by the Impact Notes Prospectus Supplement.
IFC has been issuing Impact Notes since 2014 in a variety of tenors and structures. IFC’s Impact Notes are also offered in green and social format. These products offer investors the additional benefit of supporting climate-friendly projects or specific projects that target positive impacts, such as those stated in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). On an annual basis, IFC provides impact reporting to investors on projects financed using the proceeds from green and social bonds.
