IFC investments in India up by 136% to over $2.6 Billion in FY 2018.

Nov 29, 2018 | Emerging Trends, India

International Finance Corporation (IFC), a member of the World Bank group, has invested $2.6 billion in India in FY18 as compared to $1.96 billion in 2016-17, a rise of 33 per cent over the last year. If the same is compared with FY16 numbers investments grew by 136 per cent as the World Bank’s investment arm invested $1.1 billion in 2015-16.

IFC invested in the priority areas such as infrastructure, logistics, inclusion, and sustainability. IFC said these investments are long-term, and has made over 40 engagements with partners, ranging from new-age start-ups, such as Coverfox and Bizongo, to established names such as Mahindra & Mahindra and HDFC.

This investment is an all-time high, and addresses key development gaps through select and systemic interventions in affordable housing, small and medium enterprises, distressed assets, technology start-ups, logistics, agriculture, renewable energy, and sustainable mobility. These sectors will hold key to IFC’s investment and advisory activities in India going forward.

He added: “We will continue to play a pioneering role in India, resolving the challenges of inclusion and access through sustainable private-sector solutions.”

Investments in infrastructure crossed $1 billion for the first time, and climate-related investments, too, crossed $1 billion to touch a record high. IFC’s work in the area of distressed assets has the potential to address 12-15 per cent of India’s non-performing assets.
