On May 9, 2019, the Inter-American Investment Corporation (IDB Invest) closed on a $75 million subordinated loan to Republic Bank Limited, a financial institution organized and existing under the laws of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (the Borrower). The proceeds of the loan will be used by the Borrower to support its Tier 2 Capital and (i) to finance its digital integration process and (ii) for its origination of sub-loans to sub-borrowers in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago.
