Bringing Clients Unique Strengths: The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) is a member of the World Bank Group. Its mandate is to promote foreign direct investment (FDI) in developing countries by providing guarantees (political risk insurance and credit enhancement) to investors and lenders.
MIGA’s guarantees protect investments against noncommercial risks and can help investors obtain access to funding sources with improved financial terms and conditions. The agency derives its unique strength from the World Bank Group and from its structure as an international organization whose shareholders include most countries of the world. This enables MIGA to provide an umbrella of deterrence against government actions that could disrupt projects, and assist in the resolution of disputes between investors and governments. MIGA also adds value through its ability to offer clients extensive knowledge of emerging markets and of international best practice in environmental and social management.
