Introductory Guide to Infrastructure Guarantee Products from Multilateral Development Banks

This paper considers supply and demand determinants of MDBs’ current guarantee products, addresses the requirements of private sector investors, and identifies ways to close the gaps between private sector needs and the ability of MDBs to scale up risk mitigation mechanisms. The main conclusion from this analysis is that MDBs’ business models impose significant limitations on the further use of guarantees. A possible alternative to overcome these limitations is the creation of specialized entities or off-balance-sheet facilities, learning from the experience of the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency.
