We work in more than 100 countries, using our capital, expertise, and influence to create markets and opportunities in developing countries.

IFC Asset Management Company, a division within IFC, mobilizes and manages capital for investment in emerging markets. AMC was created in 2009 to provide investors with access to IFC’s emerging markets investment pipeline and to expand the supply of long-term capital to these markets, enhancing IFC’s development goals and generating profits for investors by leveraging IFC’s global reach, standards, investment approach, and track record. AMC currently has US$10.2 billion under management through 13 investment funds that invest across a variety of sectors, geographies, and strategies. The strategies of the current AMC-managed funds cover equity and subordinated debt for commercial banks and other financial institutions; equity for infrastructure companies and projects; growth equity for generalist companies and projects in select regions; and fund investing in the resource efficiency space. AMC plans to raise and manage additional funds in the future, each with a focus on a sector, or product within the emerging markets.
IFC’s investment departments support AMC by providing certain investment origination, execution, and supervision services, while all investment and portfolio decisions background for funds under management are taken independently by AMC.
