* As measured by average repayment maturity of the loan at commitment.
** A basis swap adjustment of -0.05% is applicable to EUR fixed spread and -0.15% is applicable to the JPY fixed spread. The current fixed spread for loans denominated in GBP is set at the same rate as the fixed spread for loans denominated in USD.

The increase in the fixed spread is the result of an increase in IBRD’s projected funding cost, which Bank management reviews at least quarterly to ensure that it reflects evolving, underlying market conditions.

Please contact Miguel Navarro-Martin for more information.

[1] The basis adjustment refers to the difference between IBRD fixed spread loan pricing in US dollars and other major currencies.
