International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group)

International Finance Corporation (IFC, a part of World Bank Group) focuses on three core areas:

  • creating the institutional foundations for effective markets (examples: property rights, collateral systems, corporate governance, financial market infrastructure);
  • promoting open and competitive markets (examples: opening up entry, access to finance for promising firms, deeper and more liquid financial markets, and exit for failing firms);
  • supporting social safety nets with market-based instruments (examples: financial market-based instruments and risk management for pensions and insurance systems as well as low income housing).
