Summary Rating Rationale
Moody’s rates the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD), more commonly known as the World Bank 1, Aaa for long-term bond issues and Prime-1 for the short-term discount note program; the outlook is Stable. The key factors supporting the ratings are: (1) a strong capital base and support from its highly- rated shareholders; (2) its proven status as a preferred creditor; and (3) its sound financial management. Prudent financial policies—with the Bank having consistently remained well within its internal borrowing and lending limitations—are reflected in the IBRD’s healthy capital adequacy and liquidity ratios. As a result of its conservative practices and its preferred creditor status, the Bank has weathered relatively smoothly periods of global financial uncertainty and has maintained its fundamental strengths both in terms of its own historical record and in comparison to many other financial institutions. The biggest risk to the Bank’s financial position would come if more than one large borrower were to enter into nonaccrual status. The Bank’s preferred creditor position provides substantial protection against such an event, and Moody’s believes it remains unlikely that there would be a significant number of large borrowers in nonaccrual at the same time. The Bank’s strong liquidity position, the ability to reduce lending activity if necessary, and the availability of other sources of funds, make a resort to a call on capital only the last line of defense. This is a highly unlikely scenario, even in the event of a major increase in nonaccruals. Still, in a worst case scenario, where a number of large borrowers are unable or unwilling to make payments, bondholders are ultimately protected by the large amount of callable capital available to the IBRD.

During the fiscal year. After its creation. During FY2012 the IBRD introduced a new lending instrument called Program-for-Results. which commenced in FY2009. The first three years of the program were very successful with annual returns of the LTIP between 10% and 13%. subscriptions received and paid-in related to the general increase amounted to $15.2 billion. 3 JANUARY 11. the Bank decided to liquidate the LTIP in order to maximize its lending capacity to borrowing members.

IBRD matches borrowings in any one currency with assets in the same currency (as mandated by its Articles) and also undertakes currency conversions to match the currency composition of its equity to that of its outstanding loans. and is conservatively managed to protect the principal amount of the investments while generating a reasonable return. There are various safeguards used to protect capital adequacy.SOVEREIGN & SUPRANATIONAL Asset/Liability Management and Liquidity The aim of IBRD’s asset/liability management framework is to provide adequate funding for each loan and liquid asset at the lowest available cost and to manage the portfolio of liabilities supporting each loan and liquid asset within the prescribed risk guidelines. To minimize exchange rate risk. maturity profile and interest rate sensitivity as needed. an increase of $6. and callable guarantees may not exceed the total value of subscribed capital. the Bank’s actual liquidity has tended to be comfortably above the minimum set by policy. The need for this arose as the loan portfolio shifted from pool loans to floating LIBORbased loans. The liability portfolios are monitored and adjusted for currency composition. In accordance with the Bank’s liquidity policy (which was last revised during FY1997). in general.

Equity Duration Extension Strategy Reduces Interest Rate Sensitivity During FY2008 the Bank implemented an equity duration extension strategy with the goal of reducing the interest rate sensitivity of its operating income by taking a greater exposure to long-term interest rates. The Bank realizes that by having enough resources of its own to absorb risks it protects members from a possible capital call. At the end of the last financial year. the liquid asset portfolio should not exceed 150% of the prudential minimum liquidity level 2. to provide flexibility in timing its borrowing transactions and to meet working capital needs. 4 JANUARY 11. 2013 CREDIT ANALYSIS: IBRD (WORLD BANK) . minimally changed from 60% the previous fiscal year (which was the highest level since the 2 The IBRD may exceed 150%. As of June 30. The statutory lending limit is defined by the IBRD charter. Historically. 2012 the Bank’s total exposure to borrowing countries amounted to 59% of this limit. Capital Adequacy The steady expansion of IBRD’s capital resources over the years. which is $1 billion higher than for FY2012. means that the Bank has sufficient capital to cope with its above-average business risk. The prudential minimum for FY2013 is $22 billion. The strategy was executed by entering into interest rate swaps with a 10-year ladder repricing profile to extend the duration of equity from three months to roughly five years. Liquidity Position Historically Exceeds Strong Policy Requirements The goal of IBRD’s liquidity management is to ensure cash flows are available to meet all of the Bank’s financial commitments. liquid assets must equal at least the highest consecutive six months of anticipated debt service plus one-half of the anticipated net loan disbursements over the coming fiscal year (if positive).

The fall over the past three years was primarily due to increased lending. with this ratio posting only minimal increases since 2010.6% in 2008.

Should one or more of the member countries fail to meet this obligation. In FY2003 the IBRD instituted a policy whereby it could continue to lend to a country that had reached its concentration limit. The United States has in place legislation (including the Bretton Woods Agreements Act) that allows the Secretary of Treasury to pay up to $7.5 billion for India and $16. the fulfillment of which is independent of the action of other shareholders. and worked with relevant member countries to convert existing but not fully usable capital into fully-usable paid-in capital.
