    (Washington, DC, 2023-10-17) Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency
    Celebrating thirty-five years since its founding, in FY23 MIGA issued a record 6.4 billion in new guarantees across forty projects. Through these projects, the Agency remained focused on encouraging private investors to help host governments manage and mitigate political risks. In FY23, as it did during the COVID-19 pandemic, MIGA demonstrated its agility to respond to crisis, employing multiple products during the year to assist the embattled people of Ukraine following Russia’s invasion. An institution of the World Bank Group, MIGA is committed to strong development impact and supporting 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. It also offers trade finance guarantees, as well as credit enhancement on obligations of sovereigns, sub-sovereigns, state-owned enterprises, and regional development banks.

    In FY22, Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) issued 4.9 billion dollars in new guarantees across a record 54 projects. The projects focused on encouraging private investors to work with host governments by helping manage and mitigate political risks.

FY22 issuances are expected to help provide access to power to some 15 million people, support nearly 20,000 jobs, and enable 1.9 billion dollars in loans, including those for small and medium enterprises and climate-related activities.

    (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.

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.

    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.

    MIGA Annual Report 2014 : Insuring Investments, Ensuring Opportunities
    (Washington, DC: World Bank Group, 2014) Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency
    In 2014, the World Bank Group adopted a joint strategy for dealing with impediments to ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity. One of the strategy’s key elements underscores the essential role private sector investment can play working alongside public sector support to bear down on the most challenging development issues client countries face, such as job creation, infrastructure deficits, and climate change. MIGA’s role has become increasingly valuable in delivering results to achieve these twin goals as demonstrated by the increased demand for our political risk insurance and credit enhancement products that facilitate the expansion of private investment into emerging markets. In fiscal year 2014, MIGA issued a record $3.2 billion in new guarantees while our gross exposure reached $12.4 billion. MIGA’s added value stems from our ability to mobilize private sector investment in environments that are often beyond the risk tolerance of commercial sources of capital. This past fiscal year, MIGA worked with various stakeholders to develop our own strategy that aligns our objectives with the World Bank Group’s twin goals and underscores our aspiration to achieve significant development impact beyond what we can do alone. To achieve this, MIGA will need to be financially sustainable by prudently managing our risks, covering operating costs, and creating financial latitude by growing the Agency’s capital base.
