At IDB Invest, our job is to give our clients the tools
they need for sustainable growth.

With our depth of expertise and experience working with the private sector in Latin America and the Caribbean—our singular focus—we can provide a full range of financial products and advisory services that work for each client and each market. That might mean enabling a commercial bank to reach an underserved segment of the population or helping a company shrink its environmental footprint or leveraging funds for an infrastructure project using blended finance.

With all our investments, large or small, we want to give our clients that extra edge they need to grow their businesses, become more competitive and make a positive impact on their communities. After all, that’s how the private sector drives development.


As a significant and strategic lender in the region, we use our loans to open up new possibilities for companies to add value, take risks and test new business models.


Through partial credit enhancements or risk-sharing guarantees, IDB Invest can make a potential project more attractive to commercial investors.


In some cases, IDB Invest may become a part owner of a company—either by investing directly or through private equity funds—and share the risks and potential rewards of a business venture.
