US International Development Finance Corporation (formerly OPIC)

The United States International Development Finance Corporation (DFC) is the US government’s new full-service development finance institution, mobilizing private capital to address development challenges and advance US foreign policy priorities. From the new institution's inception, CGD analysis of its structure, guidelines, and investment opportunities equips policymakers with evidence and ideas to make the most of the new institution's increased portfolio cap, equity authority, and transparency requirements. This latest work builds on a long history of CGD analysis aimed at strengthening US development finance tools, which helped inform the blueprint of DFC.

We also invite you to explore CGD's DFI Dashboard, an interactive tool allows users to compare the lending practices and policy frameworks of 9 development finance institutions.
