Ep98: Uncertain Times: The Roles of International Finance Institutions

May 11, 2020 | By Todd Alexander | Sarah Devine | Kenneth Hansen

Development finance institutions and export credit agencies usually step into the breach when the private sector pulls back from providing financing for projects in emerging markets. Are they doing so now? We talked to Tony Bakels, director of credit and special operations at FMO, Georgina Baker, vice president for Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and Central Asia at the International Finance Corporation, Koffi Klousseh, director of project development for Africa50, Luke Lindberg, senior vice president of external engagement for the US Export-Import Bank, Hristo Stovkov, head of growth capital and innovation finance for the European Investment Bank, and Tracey Webb, vice president for structured finance and insurance at the US International Development Finance Corporation (formerly known as OPIC).


Currents Podcast features in-depth discussions on the latest developments in project finance. The podcast is hosted by partner Todd Alexander, who interviews key business leaders and policy makers to investigate important trends affecting the energy and infrastructure space.
