Impact Investing in Latin America and the Caribbean with the IDB Group
As the oldest and largest multilateral lender in Latin America and the Caribbean, the IDB Group is the premier partner for private sector projects that combine financial and social returns to contribute to poverty reduction and sustainable economic development.
Building on its solid financial position, local networks and extensive knowledge, the IDB Group partners with institutional investors, high net worth individuals as well as foundations and other impact investors to mobilize financing and provide technical assistance for projects seeking to address the needs of the low-income population in its 26 borrowing member countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
All the projects follow high environmental, labor, health and ethical standards; and are screened and monitored for development impact. The IDB Group, through its four private sector windows, partners with impact investors to co-finance projects though equity investments, syndicated loans as well as partial credit guarantees. Our deals are based on market pricing and are structured to ensure repayment of resources invested in the project.
