    MIGA Annual Report 2019
    (Washington, DC: Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency, 2019-10-11) Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency
    Private investors provide not just financing, but also solutions, for projects in developing countries. Yet, non-commercial risks can make them hesitant to invest in developing countries. A member of the World Bank Group, MIGA is committed to strong development impact and promoting projects that are economically, environmentally, and socially sustainable. MIGA helps investors mitigate the risks of restrictions on currency conversion and transfer, breach of contract by governments, expropriation, and war and civil disturbance, and also offers credit enhancement. Over the last six years, MIGA has doubled its portfolio, resulting in approximately 50 million people gaining access to power, and $3.9 billion in annual taxes and fees paid to host governments through MIGA-supported projects.

We issued $4.8 billion in guarantees to private investors. This is a record for MIGA. Nearly half of our projects were in IDA. We also continued to work tirelessly to ensure that we supported investments in fragile and conflict-affected countries, which make up 10% of our portfolio.

    MIGA Annual Report 2015
    (Washington, DC: World Bank Group, 2015-09-22) Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency
    In fiscal year 2015, the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) issued a total of $2.8 billion in guarantees for 40 projects in MIGA's developing member countries. An additional $3.2 million was issued under MIGA-administered trust funds. Projects spanned regions and sectors, with 60 percent of this new issuance falling into at least one of MIGA's priority areas. At the end of the year, MIGA's gross exposure was $12.5 billion. Of this, $4.8 billion was ceded to MIGA's reinsurance partners. MIGA’s mission is to support economic growth, reduce poverty, and improve people’s lives. In order to achieve this, the agency needs a clear understanding of the development outcomes of the projects it supports. MIGA’s Development Effectiveness Indicator System (DEIS) collects a common set of indicators from clients to demonstrate results across all projects: volume of investment catalyzed, direct employment, taxes paid, and value of locally procured goods. It also measures sector-specific indicators. MIGA's $2.8 billion issuance in fiscal year 2015 is expected to catalyze an additional $9.8 billion in public and private co-investment.
