IFC issues bonds in the global capital markets to fund investments in the private sector in emerging markets. In addition to public bonds in key markets such as those in U.S. dollars and in Australian dollars, IFC issues Uridashi bonds. We also raise capital through private placements.
IFC’s offerings include structures such as equity index- or FX-linked with fixed or digital coupon, dual currency, and zero-coupon.
IFC has an active Uridashi buyback program with a minimum buyback size of 100 million Japanese yen equivalent.
In FY21, IFC issued 50 Uridashi transactions across seven currencies, totaling $642 million equivalent.
IFC continues to actively respond to demand for IFC green and social bonds in Japan.
