Syndications IFC promotes development by mobilizing financing for the private sector in its developing member countries. In carrying out this role, we operate as both a financial and developmental institution. This developmental mandate is what differentiates IFC from commercial financiers. IFC acts as a catalyst in raising capital from foreign and domestic sources, in both private and public markets, for projects in the private sector of its member countries. Treasury Client Solutions IFC offers innovative derivative, structured finance, and local currency products and solutions that enable clients to hedge foreign exchange, interest rate, and commodity price exposure. Trade and Supply-Chain Finance The IFC Global Trade Finance Program guarantees trade-related payment obligations of approved financial institutions. The program extends and complements the capacity of banks to deliver trade finance by providing risk mitigation on a per-transaction basis for more than 250 banks across more than 80 countries. In the fiscal year ended in June 2015, IFC had an average outstanding balance of $2.8 billion in trade finance.
