The role of IFC in Blended Finance

Blended Finance is one of the complementary
tools that IFC uses to create markets
and bring about development impact.

At IFC, Blended Finance refers to a financing package comprised
of concessional funding provided by development partners and
commercial funding provided by IFC and co-investors. Blended
Finance solutions can provide fi nancial support to a high-impact
project that would not attract funding on strictly commercial
terms because the risks are considered too high and the returns
are either unproven or not commensurate with the level of risk.
