IFC is a leader in the Telecoms, Media, and Technology (TMT) sector in emerging markets. Since 2010, IFC has committed and mobilized over $6 billion for TMT projects.
We support mobile network operators, particularly those in challenging and less developed markets where the digital divide is the biggest. We also finance digital infrastructure with a focus on shared infrastructure models such as carrier-neutral, open-access broadband networks, independent tower companies and data centers. These models are examples of the most cost-effective, competition-enabling and environmentally-conscious solutions to the challenge of providing high-quality, affordable connectivity, a foundation of the digital economy.
IFC’s financing instruments include debt, equity, mezzanine financing and fund mobilization. IFC clients also benefit from IFC’s substantial industry expertise.
