Inficaldas joins ALIDE as a new active member
- The Colombian institute hopes to work hand-in-hand with the more than 80 finance institutions belonging to the Association.
June 24, 2020.- Instituto de Financiamiento, Promoción y Desarrollo de Caldas (Inficaldas) joined ALIDE as an active member. The departmental public establishment will now be able to work jointly with the other ALIDE members.
Eduardo Vásquez, ALIDE’s Head of Institutional Relations, had the following to say about the new member: “We cordially welcome Inficaldas into our Latin American Association. We are convinced that this membership will offer the subnational institution an opportunity to share its good financial practices in the area of decentralization and work with territorial entities, while allowing us to advance its institutional strengthening through our programs in support of the banking system.”
Inficaldas contributes to the financing, promotion and development of the department of Caldas by managing its investments and the provision of financial services to the territorial bodies and legal entities involved in furnishing a public service or working to fulfill a basic community need. It is also one of three financial institutions operating under the oversight of Colombia’s Office of the Financial Superintendent.
Inficaldas’s participation in ALIDE will enable the Colombian institution to establish closer links with the full range of institutions belonging to the Association, both multilateral and bilateral development cooperation bodies, and to join in our venues for discussion of specialized topics, have access to our training and information programs, share good practices in financing production and social sectors, and become involved in activities promoted by ALIDE to advance green banking.
ALIDE is the community of financial institutions that generates banking solutions for the development of Latin America and the Caribbean. Founded in 1968, its main objective is to contribute to the economic and social development of the region, through the good practices in development financing that it promotes among its associates, about 90 institutions with a presence in more than 20 Latin American countries and other regions of the world.
