IFC Infrastructure Fund Possibility with Singapore’s GIC
Like many multilateral government entities, the IMF and World Bank have been getting its hands in with sovereign wealth funds, first creating a forum for sovereign wealth funds. The Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC) which is part of the World Bank group are in talks to possibly create a global infrastructure fund.
Most sovereign funds receive equity exposure in infrastructure either through private funds or investing directly.
The fund is dubbed the Global Infrastructure Fund. It will involve the IFC’s new sub-entity called the Asset Management Company which was established in 2009 and manages three funds. The proposed infrastructure fund is purported to make equity investments in infrastructure in emerging markets.
