IFC — a member of the World Bank Group — is the largest global development institution focused on the private sector in emerging markets. We work in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries.

Background/General Description: The IFC Syndicated Loans and Mobilization Department (CSL), including 50 staff based in Washington, London, Nairobi and Singapore, works to enable IFC’s partners—commercial banks, institutional investors, insurance companies, sovereigns and other development institutions—to participate alongside us as we lend to emerging market firms. By mobilizing our partners’ capital, we forge new connections that can help increase foreign investment in the world’s poorest countries and provide a fundraising path for other growing local enterprises to follow. The CSL Co-Investor Solutions Unit (CSLCU) oversees IFC’s engagement with institutional investors and insurance companies, including the award-winning Managed Co-Lending Portfolio Program (MCPP) which has raised $16 billion to date for emerging market private credit opportunities. CSLCU also operates the IFC-MIGA Partnership, which connects IFC’s private-sector clients in emerging markets to political risk insurance and other guarantee products offered by MIGA, our sister institution in the World Bank Group. Finally, CSLCU is responsible for managing a $15 billion debt syndications portfolio on behalf of more than 200 co-investors, as well as leading the development of new scalable, replicable, and sustainable mobilization platforms, including the Warehouse-Enabled Securitization Program (WESP).
