The MDBs’ Role in Syndicated Loan Deals  (Review of the IMF Working Paper “Borrowing Costs and the Role of Multilateral Development Banks: Evidence From Cross-Border Syndicated Bank Lending”)

2020. Vol. 15. No. 1. P. [issue contents]
The review covers the 2018 IMF working paper “Borrowing Costs and The Role of Multilateral Development Banks: Evidence from Cross-Border Syndicated Bank Lending.” It is acknowledged that cross-border bank lending is becoming an increasingly important source of external financing for developing countries and therefore can play a key role in infrastructure development. The working paper examines the impact of participation by multilateral development banks (MDBs) in loan syndicates on the terms of loan deals, with a particular emphasis on loan pricing. The results of the study show that MDB participation is associated with higher borrowing costs and longer maturities, indicating a greater willingness on the part of MDBs to finance projects with higher risks which may otherwise be unattractive to private investors. In addition, MDB participation is associated with lower spreads for riskier borrowers compared to similar loans from private banks. The authors show that MDBs can help mobilize private investment in developing countries, including in infrastructure, through risk mitigation.
