IFC Client Example: Macquarie Group

IFC committed US$150 million to Macquarie India Infrastructure Opportunities Fund to provide critical equity capital to developers of private or public-private partnership infrastructure projects in India.

IFC committed US$100 million to the Macquarie - Renaissance Infrastructure Fund, which is jointly managed by Macquarie Group (Australia) and Renaissance Group (Russia) and focused on infrastructure investments in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States. The fund has committed financing to transport, power, and telecommunications projects.

IFC invested US$100 million in the Africa Infrastructure Investment Fund 2, an equity fund that promotes the development of basic infrastructure in the region. The fund invested in the Bakwena Platinum Highway toll-road concession in South Africa, which stretches 385 kilometers.

IFC invested in three Macquarie-sponsored funds in Africa, India, and Russia, committing US$350 million in total.


Innovative Models for PSD: PNG Risk Share Facility

  • Risk share model developed and tested in Africa and brought to PNG by IFC. Plans are underway to broaden the program to a regional level.
  • In PNG, less than 10% of the population has access to finance.
  • In 2011, we partnered with the PNG Government and the World Bank to set up a financial program for SMEs that will help mitigate the default risk that participating banks face by IFC guaranteeing 50 percent of loans that they extend to small and medium enterprises to help increase their access to credit.

The guarantee will help banks extend up to $61 million in new financing to small and midsize businesses.

Bank South Pacific (BSP) is the first institution to participate in the program.

Key Milestones of AusAID Partnership

Responding to Private Sector Needs


Pacific Microfinance Initiative – 35,000 people in PNG now have access to e-banking services (mobile phone banking and EFTPOS) in rural areas.

Credit bureaus established in Tonga and Vanuatu.

18 significant reforms relating to various aspects of business start-up, operations and alternative dispute resolution in Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu and Timor-Leste.

Number of days to register a business in Timor-Leste reduced from 83 to 19 days.

In Focus - Public Private Dialogue in Papua New Guinea: National Working Group in Improving Business and Investment Climate in PNG, was launched with IFC support in October, 2011 after a two-year hiatus. As a result of the work, the government allocated dedicated office space to customs officers at PNG Ports so they can operate around-the-clock to speed up customs clearances, removing a bottleneck that slows down the import and export of goods.

In Focus - Access to Finance Program in China: Through the IFC managed Access to Finance program in China, focused on financial inclusion for underserved populations and SMEs in rural areas and frontier regions, between 2006 and 2011 credit information was made available for 774 million individuals, $1.1 trillion of financing to 68 thousand SMEs was enabled by the accounts receivable registry and supported micro-credit providers increased their reach to 70 thousand borrowers.
