The IDB Group is investing in the private sector in Latin America and the Caribbean with new energy, new resources and new commitment. In 2017, it launched a new brand for its private sector operations, to signal this new direction.
The name—IDB Invest—evokes both our roots and our new vision. Grounded in the Inter-American Development Bank’s history and experience, we are investing in the private sector, investing in the region’s future, as never before.
At IDB Invest, we want to be as dynamic as the region we serve—a region that is fast becoming more urban, more digitally connected, better educated, more widely traveled, with a burgeoning middle class and pent-up demand for goods and services. All this requires a robust, competitive and innovative private sector.
We want to be a better partner to business—more agile, more flexible—to better meet our clients’ needs. We have been retooling ourselves and expanding our presence throughout the region, putting together a strong team that knows the local market and knows the business.
As an institution committed to economic growth and social inclusion, the IDB Group understands that development is not just up to governments. The private sector can be—must be—a powerful engine of economic progress and social good. After all, investing in sustainable development is not only the just and right thing to do; it’s also a smart business decision.
At IDB Invest, we are building on the rock-solid foundation the Inter-American Development Bank has established over the course of nearly six decades as a trusted development partner for Latin America and the Caribbean. We are working hand in hand with the IDB to create new synergies and increase investment in the region, using our own resources and working with partners around the world to mobilize more funding.
We have a new name, but most importantly, we have a new mindset. IDB Invest is open for business.
