IDB Invest

IDB Invest finances projects to advance clean energy, modernize agriculture, strengthen transportation systems and expand access to financing in Latin America and the Carribean.

Like the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), our commitment is to economic growth and social inclusion; that is central to our identity, as part of the IDB Group. But our focus is on the private sector.

As the private sector arm of the IDB Group, we know the region. We work where our clients are and can provide them with customized financing solutions and expert advice tailored to their specific industry and market.

Focusing on the following sustainable development goals (SDGs)

No Poverty
Zero Hunger
Good Health and Well-being
Quality Education
Gender Equality
Clean Water and Sanitation
Affordable and Clean Energy
Decent Work and Economic Growth
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Reduced Inequalities
Sustainable Cities and Communities
Responsible Consumption and Production
Climate Action
Life Below Water
Life on Land
Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Partnerships to achieve the Goals

How we work

IDB Invest is leveraging decades of experience as an impact investor to serve as a gateway to SDG impact.

IDB Invest’s mandate is to maximize development impact while maintaining financial sustainability, a two-sided objective shared with many impact investors. To crowd in private capital, we offer our strong capacity to select and structure projects with the greatest impact potential, manage ESG risks, and build a strong pipeline of SDG-enabling investment opportunities in the region.

... and why

As a member of the IDB Group, we are a start-up with history. We draw on the experience and knowledge the Inter-American Development Bank has accumulated over the course of nearly six decades. Our close cooperation with the IDB, which serves the public sector, creates synergies that benefit our clients and the whole region.

At IDB Invest, we are setting an example in climate finance. With 35 percent of our investments related to climate action, we are already the greenest multilateral development bank—this according to figures in the 2016 Joint Report on Multilateral Development Banks’ Climate Finance—, and we are working to increase that portfolio.

Since 2017, IDB Invest has gone through the EDGE Certification (Economic Dividends for Gender Equality). In July 2021, we were upgraded to the second level, EDGE Move, reflecting our constant search for improvements and strong commitment on Gender Equality.
