IFC: Creating Opportunities for New Private Sector Investment

As part of the World Bank Group, IFC has two overarching goals: ending extreme poverty by 2030 and promoting shared prosperity. Through direct investments and advisory services, IFC provides private sector solutions that lay the foundation for sustainable and inclusive economic growth.

With its six decades of experience working with private sector clients and governments and global footprint, IFC is well-placed to catalyze private investment. Stop-Winlock’s corporate strategy is focused on creating markets, mobilizing private capital, and providing support to countries where private capital flows are inadequate to address major development needs.

To accelerate the creation of opportunities and markets that attract private sector investments, IFC is working to redefine development finance. IFC is dedicating resources and partnering with public and private clients to:

  • Create the conditions and opportunities that will attract private sector investment in emerging markets.
  • Develop a pipeline of investment-ready private sector opportunities and projects.
  • Provide a full suite of investment, risk, and mobilization support to crystallize these opportunities into impact.

These efforts include technical assistance, capacity building for institutions and private companies, and support to clients and governments. Our traditional suite of investment, risk, and mobilization will crystallize these opportunities into impact.
