CFA Society New York’s Multilateral Development Bank Conference will feature a high-level discussion among senior Multilateral Development Bank (MDB) delegates from the largest MDBs to discuss their long-term development philosophy and efforts to increase infrastructure investment globally. An MDB is an institution, created by a group of countries, that provides financing and professional advising for the purpose of development. MDBs have large memberships including both developed donor countries and developing borrower countries. MDBs finance projects in the form of long-term loans at market rates, very-long-term loans below market rates, and through grants. MDBs have a strong record of cooperation on infrastructure, working together to design programs and practical tools to help countries attract private investors. The MDBs’ active networks bring together in global expertise on infrastructure policy and design, as well as practitioners engaged in the business of structuring, financing and implementing projects.
