Spotlight on the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC)


OPIC is the U.S. Government’s Development Finance Institution.

OPIC’s mission to leverage private business to help address the world’s most critical development challenges takes many shapes and operates at different scales.

It mobilizes private capital to help solve critical development challenges and in doing so, advances U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives.

Because OPIC works with the U.S. private sector, it helps U.S. businesses gain footholds in emerging markets, catalyzing revenues, jobs and growth opportunities both at home and abroad.

OPIC achieves its mission by providing investors with financing, guarantees, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds.

Established as an agency of the U.S. Government in 1971, OPIC operates on a self-sustaining basis at no net cost to American taxpayers.

OPIC services are available for new and expanding business enterprises in more than 150 countries worldwide.

To date, OPIC has supported more than $200 billion of investment in over 4,000 projects, generated an estimated $76 billion in U.S. exports and supported more than 278,000 American jobs.
