IFC Loans, Equity and Syndications

Publishing Organization


IFC finances projects and companies through loans from its own account, typically for seven to 12 years. It also makes loans to intermediary banks, leasing companies, and other financial institutions for on-lending.



IFC generally invests between five and 20 percent of a company’s equity. It encourages the companies it invests in to broaden share ownership through public listings, thereby deepening local capital markets. IFC also invests through profit-participating loans, convertible loans, and preferred shares.



IFC promotes development by mobilizing financing for the private sector in its developing member countries. IFC acts as a catalyst in raising capital from foreign and domestic sources, in both private and public markets, for projects in the private sector of its member countries.
