The Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) is a member of the World Bank Group whose mission is to promote foreign direct investment (FDI) into developing countries to help support economic growth, reduce poverty, and improve people’s lives.
MIGA’s operational strategy plays to our foremost strength in the marketplace—attracting investors and private insurers into difficult operating environments.
As a multilateral development agency, MIGA only supports investments that are developmentally sound and meet high social and environmental standards. MIGA applies a comprehensive set of social and environmental performance standards to all projects and offers extensive expertise in working with investors to ensure compliance to these standards.
MIGA’s guarantees protect investments against-non-commercial risks and can help investors obtain access to funding sources with improved financial terms and conditions.
Since its inception in 1988, MIGA has issued more than $28 billion in political risk insurance for projects in a wide variety of sectors, covering all regions of the world.
